Yup, there are people to talk to. :-) I'm cc-ing this reply to the ag-tech mailing list, where most of the technical staff exchange advice. (I'm not cc-ing ag-users; it's for less technical discussions.) I'll bet you'll get plenty of advice now! Information about joining this mailing list is at http://www.accessgrid.org/documentation/mailinglists.html .

Also, you might be interested to know that some of us hang out on a MOO; information on how to find us is at http://www.accessgrid.org/agdp/howto/use-venues-moo.html .
