There must be a web site, somewhere, that would turn a place name
anywhere in the world into its latitude and longitude... it makes
for a great "computer rescue squad" function, too, as the person
could also volunteer their willingness to travel, and you could
alert people to a computer that was within their personal tolerable

Which reminds me, if you forward a "rescue this computer" message
to the list, it's so very helpful if you can fill-in the location
if it's not apparent from the message.
