Not sure if you actually read some of the previous postings - especially 
the one that said cqcontest.ru is now cqcontest.net .

Dmitry, the owner of cqcontest.net, has recently complicated the process 
for posting scores.

Here is what is required:

- A new username and password . Old usernames most likely won't work.

- The username MUST be the same as the callsign for which the real-time 
score report is being submitted. For example, if NQ4I uses a different 
callsign next weekend, such as NA4A, he CANNOT use his existing nq4i 
cqcontest.net username to submit reports. It will fail because the 
username (nq4i) does not match the callsign (NA4A). He must obtain a new 
username (na4a).

The current version of N1MM Logger+ has a number of cross-checks and 
status messages to minimize the chance of errors. However, as the N1MM 
Logger programmer who made these changes, cqcontest.net still feels like 
a moving target.
