Funny stuff Scott. Do you work for MS? >;)

Seriously though to solve the problem I (and others) run each contest from a 
different directory off of \LOG. The path is set to point to \LOG so TR can be 
run from anywhere. The contest subdirectories each contain a LOGCFG.DAT 
specific of the contest that year/semester/quarter. For me the CW Sprint which 
I did not participate in was in the \LOG\SPRINT\CWSEP98 directory. The use of 
a "common.cfg" really helps keep the LOGCFG.DAT contest specific.
