    I don't understand the last sentence; in particular, "fort hsi" is
    beyond my power to decode unambiguously.

    I suspect that others have more current experience with kiosk-style
    setups. It strikes me that Python might have a particular advantage
    at work such as this, which combines curses-level input with graphical
    output. I suspect a VB, or, more generally, "forms painter" programmer
    would be lost without his usual point-and-click model, while, to
    Tkinter of wxPy, it's all just scripts anyway.

    What's your real target? Do you want to program this yourself, and
    just get help, or do you prefer a specialist just create a turnkey
    package and hand it over to you?

    "for this", clearly <wink>

  5. Sounds like a generic html based information kiosk.

    Anyone can do this pretty easily using embedded IE or Mozilla ActiveX
    control wrapped up in Venster. Just run an internal http server in another
    thread.. I've done this for desktop apps. Though, full-screen windows I
    haven't tried, but should be straightforward.
