Based on this year's experience, I think we all know that we need more than one computer tracking the balloon.  I tried to setup something similar to what Danny runs, but the software is old and some is obsolete. 

I started thinking about the Internet version that Danny wrote, and the fact that I figured out how to decipher the KISS TNC stuff, and I think I am going to try to write my own tracking program in Python.  I found there is a Google Maps API library for Python, so I am going to install it and start playing with it and see if I can come up with something.

Google Maps API Library for Python

I don't know if this is the Library I finally end up with or not, but this is where I am going to start.
