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?
