Hello SS Fans,

Before CQWW SSB, I announced the availability of Leaderboard Live! , my
web site and client software for Writelog, which allows you to provide
realtime scoring information to web viewers and contest participants
alike.   During CQWW, we had between 10-12 stations active ( I wish more
had tried it!) and everything worked flawlessly.   We had it running at
VY2SS, where we did 12.8 Megs M/S, and the score was updated
continuously using our dialup internet connection.

Why not join the bandwagon during this weekend's CW Sweepstakes?
Currently, I have a plugin for Writelog which will post your scores
automatically (http://www.contestlogs.com/plugin).   By the end of the
day today (11-2-01), I will have a manual score update applet available
on http://www.contestlogs.com/generalupdate.   You can run this applet
on any internet-connected box and update your score on breaks or
whatever.   (Since there is a chance that someone might enter a bogus
score using the manual updater, the leaderboard will indicate the score
is user-entered.)

Real time score information is available to general web visitors at 
http://www.contestlogs.com/live.    For those using Writelog, the plugin
displays the leaderboard in a window within Writelog.   The manual score
updater will also have a leaderboard window.

I'm happy to provide API information for anyone wishing to integrate
the update applet into a logging/contesting application.

Have a great SS -- I'll see you there for a limited number of hours!
