That I can also live with,


One more question,,  what happen to all the QSO's that are the 
equivalent of random QSO's  that happen on any other contest where the 
other station is NOT in the test, and is just giving out contacts and 
never submits a log.  what happens there in this new verify thing?

I can't speak exactly as to the details, but the general idea is to build up a list of submitted QSOs.  As the software is able to match them up, they'll be validated and points added to the score.  If a QSO is not submitted, the server will be "open for business" until ten minutes after the contest and then stop accepting QSOs.  It will then go through the entire list of non-validated QSOs and match up all that it can.
