good news, tlf-0.9.7 is now on the download site, and has some new features 
which have been requested by many... In the network you can now start a node 
mid-contest without a logfile, and it will sync automatically. You can 
specify the file to sync with in logcfg.dat or from the command line...

Also the wish for making INSERT mode the default has been built in...


- Added new parameter for logcfg.dat:
        SYNCFILE=user:address@hidden/dir/syncfile (wget syntax).
        When you start tlf with this parameter in logcfg.dat tlf will wget the  
logfile from the relevant node, make a dated backup of your local logfile, 
and merge the 2 files. WARNING: this contains the password of the remote 
machine, so I also:

- Added a new startup option for tlf: -s<remote file name> :
        tlf -suser:address@hidden/dir/syncfile will sync the local logfile at 

- Added parameter to change colors (defaults remain as usual):
        TLFCOLOR1=23            (Header and footer)
        TLFCOLOR2=67            (Pop up windows)
        TLFCOLOR3=70            (Log window)
        TLFCOLOR4=57            (Markers/dupe colour)
        TLFCOLOR5=43            (Input fields)
        TLFCOLOR6=63            (Window frames)
        The numbers in octal, fg/bg or bg/fg (you have to try it).
        You should only specify these if you don't agree with the standard 
colours of 

- Call edit mode is now default INSERT mode (log edit remains OVERWRITE mode).

- Bug fix: CE0Y/SP9DTP was wrongly located in Poland (also works for VP2E 
now :-)

happy testing,
