Yes, Pete, I stand corrected. Despite the fact that APRServ and aprsd had keep alive long before you wrote the first line of javAPRSSrvr (and despite your statement that they were non-existant still often triggered on local (port 14579) feeds when you were starting your software), you in fact invented them. In fact, you invented the entire APRS-IS: my, Dale's, Steve's, and the rest's work was simply laying the groundwork for you to invent the APRS-IS. You probably were the guy that gave Al Gore the idea for the internet too. Feel better?
