Today I had an opportunity for a much deeper view into the problem and I was a little shaken by it. This isn't good. But there's nothing I can do here and now about it. I do need to visit them in the next six months, see what happens on home turf. Travel is hard, and packing and tracking tools is a pain in the ass for everyone. I can only hope that help will be accepted when offered, and that a serious evaluation happens soon. You can't fix a problem if you don't know what the real problem is.
