One more cool thing

If you've got a copy of the client running (most likely APRSIS32) drawing from a full feed (port 10152) or with a HUGE range, try fading out the OSM maps the whole way (left arrow). When the map disappears, the client quits doing a Mercator Projection and reverts to plotting stations based on distance and bearing from the center of the screen. Well, the new version actually plots Lat/Lon lines every 10 degrees when it enters this mode. Zoom out and then drag the screen around. It's quite....interesting. Especially if you've got stations in the US, Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand!

PS. The kids are home on spring break starting this weekend and through next weekend, so the updates will probably slow to a crawl....Unless I really broke something!
