So in summary, your answer is no?

Never say no. Instead, I will say "I don't know the way". :)

Or rather, I haven't found a way. There is always firewalking to try, but 
that can be time consuming and I'm not sure about the validity of the 
results. I think it depends upon the type of the firewall as to the success 
of the probing using this technique - Anyone feel free to jump in when they 
think my head is just below the surface. Thx.

(interesting graphic on that site btw.) I don't think the author's have, but 
I will attach a warning - not for people who suffer from epilepsy or  
headaches induced by flashing lights.  :D (j/k) 

I was simply being pedantic with the rest of it.
