One explanation to the NIL deal.
During 2004 WW CW at CN2KM I lost about 30 Q´s due
to a software problem, a 10 minute time slot is gone
due too software bug.
Machines are next to perfect but humans are not, humans
do write software and operate computers and humans do
make misstakes.
I´m sorry for the 30 Q´s that went out in the bit jungle,
30 poor souls lost a multiplier and I lost some points.
