True! As long as the tech works...

My experience has always been two sharing one PC, ie taking-it-in-turns 
to think or to type. Do you do it differently?

Intended to show the survey so-far (has he done his own 'homework'?), to 
save us from 'red herrings' but also to see if other approaches might

Always the former, the local devices are merely 'repeaters' (through a 
web browser) of what is happening on the server. This at both edit and
