I should have mentioned that you can do this DURING the 'test as well. It's just more of a "panic" then as the PCs go offline to do the merge.
If you write some simple batch files, you can speed up the process.

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.
PeoplePC: It's for people. And it's just smart.
