That just gave me an idea. What about an install help network type of
dealie? If somebody wants a lot of help all at once, then they go over to
some web site, find somebody in the closest town to them, and then e-mail
or call to arrange an "appointment". <- note: use of correctly parsed
English, with period AFTER the '"'. That person could then drop by the
helping person's place of business, house, local cyber cafe (I've heard
they exist, but never seen one on the east coast), etc... After that the
newbie could be assigned to the other person for all his/her Linux
needs. Obviously if somebody wanted to do one or the other, then that
would be an option as well.

waiting for them to grow up harboring feelings of vengeance towards me in my
old age.
