Thanks to Matt (KC1XX) I now have a CT 9.31 diskette & user manual sitting
on my desk. Inserted the diskette and typed INSTALL, after I entered my
station details (typical "little pistol" setup - derringer, more like), a
voice came on the speakers (Yes, I run Win95): "You want to use CT with THIS
setup? Bah!!" and the program exited with a derisive snort and a Bronx Cheer
But seriously - I have not even BEGUN to use the program & already I am
intimidated by all the messages on the mailing list. Seems to have a snag
list bigger than the early Apollo moonshot missions (Yup, I am old enough to
remember them). All this for what is in essence a simple logging program but
dedicated to contests. Jim/AD1C provides magnificent support including
personalized service (thanks again, Jim) but still in this humble/1st time
contester's opinion the path is far too convoluted.
Moral of the story in my opinion: time a Windows (preferably 95 & NT)
version of CT was developed/released. A lot of us using just the single
machine to perform a multitude of tasks.
Thus speaketh a poverty stricken Third Worlder.
