That software fix is our last hope--Obi-Wan
No. There is another.--Yoda

The other hope is that you could remind your little pistol friends to
submit their logs. This might even be especially true of one-QSO logs
and friends we have known since they were 8. Recall the  WRTC podium
finishers that were decided by such a little pistol and his missing log.

Yesterday I browsed the top of the recent ARRL DX CW 2017 results and
then clicked the link to the last page to confirm my own 8-QSO log was
there. It was not. That last results page is FULL of single-QSO submissions.
