I have no transport to Owen Sound to do this, but if there is high-speed
and vnc can be put on, I can do phone + show-and-tell support (and with
a microphone and appropriate software on their end, I could do it all
over high-speed--I haven't looked into the software for this, so I'd
need suggestions).

PS. I've added another idea to my mix of research possibilities, namely
detecting and dealing with catastrophic failures of large portions of
the distributed computing networks (think of the blackout of 2003 in a
distributed computing world).
