My friends recommend LOTW, but I am wondering how to configure it between my 2 computers. One (fast) desktop is the "main" computer we use, but I will also have access to a laptop (slower, but wireless) that I plan to use at my station. Can I load LOTW both places, or is there a way to store the files temporarily on the laptop (downstairs) and then upload them (downstairs). Help info mentions transferring the certificate from one computer to the next, but isn't clear (to me) if it's possible to have LOTW running on two computers.

The only part of LoTW that you are "running" on your computer(s) is the logbook signing utility. This utility uses (a copy of) your certificate to sign your logbook files.

You may copy your certificate to as many computers as necessary for your purposes by following the instructions at http://www.arrl.org/advanced-lotw
