On being tech-support

Somehow, ([de|il]lusions of competency, maybe) I often manage to get drafted into doing this whole tech-support thing. Usually, I know what I'm getting into before I agree to the job, but this time, I'm not so sure that's the case.

My job will be to make "it" work. "it" involves four computers, several scanners, several cell-phones, a power inverter (maybe two), and several pieces of hardware I have probably never seen before. "it" will be installed in a Volkswagen Westfalia (not that one, though), and will be used for digital conversion and/or archiving of just about any analog data: Home videos, photographs, negatives, slides, important documents, &c.

One of my cousins is heading up this project. If you (or any of your relatives) are interested, and live in North America, it would be appreciated if you/they would fill out this survey, so she (and I) have some idea what exactly we are going to be doing. There will be another survey coming soon, and I'll post it as soon as I hear about it. If you do not live in .us, feel free to contact me by any reliable method, and I'll forward your location on to my cousin, but don't get your hopes up too high. Hawaii is also rather unlikely.

(Disclaimer: that survey should not be considered an order form, but more of a "What services would you use if we came to your area?")
