That would be fine also,

It is the "Live" logging that is the bad thing.

For me even also.  It's nice living out in the middle of nowhere.  DSL 
has only gotten here in the past 2 years or so. And all internet is 
available only vis one company only out here.  And the quality sucks. 
It's down  a lot.  Dialup you get dumped every 10 minutes or so.  and 
then have to play russia roulette to grab an open modem just as fast as 
you can after someone else was dumped.  Then the DSL  may go fast  
sometimes.  but them other times a e mail that is only like 100K will 
take ten minutes to download, and many times times out.

Run the contest then send logs in  60 min later or so  Is fine.  Live 
logging  sucks
