Automatic Updates: My SARTrack program check for updates on startup,
using a sepparate update program. Asks the user, then one click and
automatic ftp update is in progress (for a range of files, including the
update program itself). Restart of the program will update all.
Because it is still in Beta, the program will _expire_ after 3 months,
and won't run anymore, this forces people to update regardless.
Re flooding, I added AIS decoding a short while ago, with capability to
forward to Internet. These AIS vessels really pump out the position
reports at a huge rate.
I am right now in the progress of rate-limiting the forwarding of AIS
packets to not more than 1 per 60 seconds per station, to ease the load
on the APRS servers. That is easy enough.
I do agree with some other posters that a rate-limiting system on the
APRS-IS servers could be incorporated for massive floods like this.
