I've long thought that logging programs should include an output that
triggers an M&M dispenser for each new multiplier, 100K point barrier, full
hour of operating without off times, etc.
If rewards work for rats, they ought to work for contesters.

Work a new state, and a window pops up briefly with the previously worked
states in gray and the new state flashing in red.
The same for grid squares. Even working a new county might pop up a state
map with the counties already worked in gray and the new one flashing in
A great circle map might flash the path as a red line for the current
contact, and it leaves a dot on the map for the contact which begins to
