My memory is a little fuzzy on this, as I was a referee in 2002 and didn't
use the program, but wasn't the problem with the *special* version of the
software needed for WRTC teams with the different scoring, and not the
regular version ?  People spent the days in Finland up to the contest trying
to break the software, to make sure it would be ready.  I also seem to
remember that about 48 of the 52 teams used CT with no problem, and that a
non-trivial scoring problem with *another* software was noted in
mid-contest..  Someone correct me as necessary...

Hope to see you all in Brazil !
