Okay - 

I have the latest PSKmail server up, communicating with the aprs and other 
servers specified in the config file. There are a couple of issues. Even though 
I disallow PSK500R with the $NO500 variable set to 1, that is still the default 
it sets FLdigi to. Also, the server wants to bring up it’s own FLdigi 
waterfall-only mode window, rather than use the FLdigi I bring up before 
invoking the server. Perhaps there are flags I can set if I invoke pskserver 
from the command line?

There is another config detail which isn’t clear to me. How does the users 
database get updated? Manually? Or does it update as users connect to it?
