An algorithm could be used to provide an "adjustment" factor that would analyze past hourly cumulative scores and bump up a new 36 hour SO score to approximately what it *should* be at 48 hours (to appease Record-Breaking Seekers).   I actually started working on such a beast in the hotel room in St. Croix after 40 hours in 2004 ARRL CW DX Contest left me feeling like I had been the Demonstration Test Subject at an annual (that's a-n-n-u-a-l) Proctologist's Convention ;-(
