I think the only way this is going to work is if 
you use QSO numbers by band.  I guess if you 
used only two computers you could be assured that
this would never have QSO number problems provided 
the program had a QSO number per computer feature.

You can tag the QSOs with the computer ID but again if you
are using more than two computers that will not really
seperate out the two "transmitters".

You will just need to make sure that the run and s&p guy 
are talking to eachother and deal with it just like you 
would if you were doing this on paper.

If the S&P guy is at a third computer you will need to make sure 
that the QSO number you are going to give out is one plus the 
last one the run guy gave out - you can get out of sync if there
are any network delays etc.
