Does this strike anyone else as ridiculously complicated for newbies who
should be more concentrated on making HF Radio contacts than what server
they are uploading to.  Can we stick to HF guys..and let the gamers game..

"As expected, there are changes as the first running of the ARRL Rookie
Roundup approaches. As of the end of March, no major logging programs yet
support real-time QSO submission. (They will eventually, but not for this
first event.) Therefore, we are simplifying how information will be
submitted to the getscores.org Web server. The first method is to submit a
scoring summary (score, QSOs, multipliers) using the existing getscores
Universal Score Uploader <http://www.getscores.org/universal.aspx> . The
second way is to submit individual QSOs using the new online Web browser
logging interface (the URL for this interface will be announced shortly). To
use the Web-browser interface, your call sign will be registered using the
common technique of an emailed password that allows you to log on to the
interface. The interface is used like a regular logging program while you
are operating. Alternately, you can log on paper (a logging form will be
provided) and enter your QSOs intermittently or after the contest using that
same Web page. More complete information will be posted on the Rookie
<http://rookieroundup.wordpress.com/>  Roundup Blog and on the getscores
Rookie Roundup FAQ in the next few days."  From ARRL Contest Update.
