BTW, there's no database to restore; if there are network outages during the
contest then after the contest you'll need to run MERGE to create the
final log from the logs stored on each node.
*** This is not a good idea.
This is your only choice. When computer A logs a callsign, and computer B is off the network (for whatever reason) computer B doesn't get the QSO. That's the way CT's network operates. There's no resynchronization of the logs...there's no "server" that maintains a master log (anyway, if there were a server, it too would be subject to the same disconnections and missing QSOs). Multi's with network trouble (or PC crashing/RFI problems) regularly have to merge logs at the end.
