[aprssig] Live Telemetry Data Through a Simple Web Page

Google shouldn't have any problem with the URLs, or the way they work.
Yahoo and MSN seem to be only other two making any significant noise at the
moment, and I doubt they'd have any problem with them either.

If anybody does find a problem with the URLs, I could easily make a way to
alternately call it so that doesn't look like a script, such as:


...or something very similar.  Then crawlers would just see it as a page
with little indication that it's actually a dynamic script.  I'm not sure
how much it matters though.

Let me know if you think it's worth it to set that up.  It wouldn't take
much time to do.

Thanks Brad for the effort in your REPLACE scripts.  This is a quick note to
let you know that I'm making use of your efforts and am appreciative.  I've
modified my telemetry web page to use your new nomenclature.  I'll probably
remove the old XQL based <iframe> status line when I revisit the page to
make it pretty.  


Do you have any idea how the web crawlers will deal with the redirect and
replace?  Hopefully they won't discard the link and web page.
