Bob Hayes, KW8N, pointed out at a recent MRRC meeting that 
it was actually easier to make high rates on paper than it is
using the computer.

On paper, you can put multiple calls or parts of calls from a pileup 
in the log and work them in quick succession. On the computer
(depending upon your short-term memory), you log one-at-a-time.
