Hi Jeff,

we are using findu or aprs.fi to show positions on the internet. Googling "PA0R 
will get you there almost immediately. Of course this could be mashed up with 
twitter easily, but 
the 140 char limit sort of makes it illogical to combine the functions...

Also, the client is getting a built-in map functionality...

The possibilities are endless, and every server sysop can add functionality.
