Actually, they cannot do any of these things except save their work!
There is no sysadmin. Our IS department is totally Windows focused and
does not know how to help us with Solaris 10-based stuff. If we have
problems we either figure it out ourselves or call the owners of the
planning software for remote help. As I am the only person in our
group with any programming knowledge (weak though it is), this means I
usually wind up trying to solve issues as they arise. These client
machines are dedicated to a single purpose: radiation therapy
treatment planning. They either cannot or should not be doing anything

If a user initiates one of my programs/scripts then the user is
focused on that task to exclusion of anything else, since that
comprises the next step in his planning process workflow.
