One of the 7QP organizers contacted me today.  I had used the TR Log 
.DOM file as my template, but it was not correct and I didn't notice 
it.  There's a new TR template there with the corrections.  I'll be 
putting up new files tomorrow.

I also uploaded and linked to the wrong file.  I'll fix this at the same time.

I'm not sure what "CQP in CTWIN is broken" means, it works 
here.  There is NO WAY that all the 7QP multipliers can be displayed 
in CT, whether CT works or not.

I think there are more negatives than positives in your message.  I 
gave the CT files to K4XU weeks ago but they had not been posted to 
the 7QP web site.  I decided to put the files on the CT site 
today.  ANYONE could have sent them to me, with suggestions as to 
which contest module to use, and I would have been happy to spread 
the word.   Without badmouthing CT or the work that I VOLUNTEERED to 
do at the request of someone from 7QP.

It's YOUR contest, not mine.
