Steve and Andy,

I was one of the connecties, and had it running for a few hours 
following a friend on his way to California. I had it refreshing every 
minute. So, if I understand, I was accessing the cgi-bin 240 times in 
the last 4 hours.. It would be nice if that data could be pulled from 
the APRS-IS without taxing any server??? But someone has to have the 
cgi-bin running?
