DR does have a place where you can say "Log anyway" or something like that.
I didn't get to play in the IDC so my memory is fuzzy... I think it's in a
right click someplace.
I did my playing with the auto mode in daily operation just to see how it
worked - which is pretty well but it had its quirks and at the end of the
proverbial day you get a higher score if you pick the station to work.
Someday soon I hope to have time to dive into the DR code and make some of
these little mods, and maybe remove the auto mode so it is cleaner for
