I think credit for the APRS-IS goes to Steve and the Sprouls,
since all I did was hook APRSdos into a TCPIP-to-Serial port
adapter so it could let APRSdos see APRS remotely.  I also wrote
a server and had telephone dial up built into APRSdos so that
you could dial-up and see the big picture.  But within 6 months,
the growth was so fast, that APRSdos was overloaded.  I took all
that out.

I went back to an RF-only focus for APRSdos, since just keeping
up with APRS going on around here locally is more than anyone
can assimilate anyway...
