Happened to me also, and I realized it too late. I quickly debated what to 
do and decided to log it anyway so the other guy's log was matched 
time-wise OK here. If it were "required" I couldn't (?) have logged him.

BUT - why not _beep_ me if something is wrong with the entry - why is it 
programmers don't use the PC's beep speaker anymore - aren't those little 
speakers still inside all PCs? Even my new P4 beeps when it starts.

BTW, I realized after the contest I could have simply scrolled RTTYrite 
back and read his number from the screen - Duh!
