Dave and others

Sorry about the broken links. The ones on the Contest Committee website are 
known about and Dave G4BUO will fix them imminently if he hasn't already 
done so.

Marios fixed a problem with the IOTA contest website when he returned from 
5B4 (where he had, not unreasonably, gone for the contest :-)  ).

1100 logs received already - I guess we seriously need to think about 
reducing submission deadlines in future as 4 weeks is clearly no longer 
necessary. I gather some paper logs have been received at RSGB. Inevitably 
so, though numbers are decreasing - I have a couple of volunteers to type 
them up, but a couple more might be handy, too.
