By half?  I'm slipping, clearly.

I'm confused.  It's impossible to write a script to help users
transition because the config file changes daily. Makes sense.  But
it's not a beta release?  I'm confused (not a surprise, BTW).  I
gather link above is a stable release. I'm used to versions changing
rapidly because I use the DXLab Suite. But other than test versions
sent to individuals, I don't recall there being releases not intended
for daily use.

The version I have claims to be 0.19.4147.0.

As I said, not in the version I have. Having it would have been
easier, IMHO.  I'll try as you say, but I imagine there are a lot of
casual contesters like myself who will just throw up their hands and
stick to the last N1MM Logger-.
