Hopefully he decides to take part.
Anybody I have personally tried to recruit has been too scared to take part. I think their fragile eggshell minds were damaged by sci-fi movies at a young age and they think aliens are going to crawl down the pipes and get them.
All my running boxes boxes are at home in my office or in use around the house.
I have access to a fair number of computers through my work, but since I don't want to be branded a space alien/terrorist by them too, I have never attempted to enlist them.
