KY1V of Jamaica fame nicely sumarized computers contribution to hamradio contesting.

There is only one awesome step left – PC robot automatically starting logical CW transmission (not only CQ loop).
I’ve done that in 1991 and it quickly become boring.  But it would be soon interesting with thousand of participants worldwide.

G4BUO fear of extreme CW speeds occured on old HST competitions when experienced contesters could only recognize pauses between 5 letters groups at 80 wpm.  It is amazing what trainig can do to humans.  Even make them listen to two separate single tone CW strings for 48 hours ☺
