I'm not into contests so I'm not familiar with much of this. I take it 
that if you use a computer connected to the rig "for any reason" you end 
up in a different class?  And what's a "skimmer?"

I do keep my log on a spread sheet though which doesn't prevent dupes. 
Just makes them faster to find when you are done. Now that I only have 
one hand working, the computer is slower than a pencil for logging, but 
it's readable<:-)). I can hardly wait until I get the control of that 
hand back so I can type again.
