oooooohhhh... this gives me an idea... the flightgear simulator can send JSON for html queries... i use it for a simple python script to pull the data for AI craft when i have FG running so i can see where craft are and their departure/arrival airports and similar data...
the cool(?) idea i just had is to have a section in the BBS that works kinda like the interbbs messages thing where it polls FG occasionally, pulls the data and formats it for display in similar fashion to the interbbs message thing... read-only to start with as a type of monitor but imagine controlling an AI in the simulator via text instructions from a BBS ;)
where's geneb? he's another FGer that might have some ideas in this vein -=B-)
