Online scoreboards are most useful when everyone, or at least high
scoring stations use them. Otherwise you can have someone come out of
nowhere and totally trounce your score.

I used to use getscores.org which was hosted by KY1V. It was good when
it worked properly but I found that some scores would not update and
then the end result was different from what was in the website...

I may try CQContest.net sometime but I'm a bit skeptical. Concept
seems nice but without participation it becomes less than useful.
