Looks like it's going to go feet dry right where I *USED* to live.

My various maps have been plotting the K6RPT-12 balloon flight from the 
Internet feed.

It is currently near Chicago, and I am now hearing directly on RF from 
QTH in central Michigan.  (Haslett, MI about 5 miles from East Lansing, 
MI. Pretty cool - my Xastir and APRSIS32 instances both show it over 
Michigan with a speed of over 200mph.  The GPS issues are resulting in
a pretty strange track, however.

WOW!   I'm getting something approaching a DOS (denial-of-service) 
attack on my UI-webserver right now.

This server running on a home cable modem with a dynamic IP (i.e. 
only about 400K upstream) was hit 53 times in the first minute and 
half after I made the original post above to four APRS lists 
(Yahoo! UIview, Yahoo.uk Crosscountry Wireless, Yahoo! CA APRS and 
this TAPR list).
