[CQ-Contest] TR4W - ready for prime time?

Be very careful using 'autohotkey'. It works very well and does what it says 
it will do. I use it during every CW contest with N1MM. I use it to program 
F12 to keyboard sending CW rather than the 'klunky' system N1MM uses. It 
works perfectly every time. All that being said there is a but, and it's a 
big 'BUT', it does not play well with some other resident TSRs. If you rely 
on another TSR test it before you start using autohotkey because your other 
TSR may quit working. I learned the hard way and had to reinstall my other 
resident TSR after every time I use autohotkey.
Good Luck

Everyone in the world is
entitled to be burdened
by my opinion

Dmitri didn't need to do this. AutoHotKey (www.autohotkey.com) is a great 
of free software that can map any key, and works great with all Windows
contesting software.
