First, just move the computer. It's easier than moving the cat.
As for Jole - it was nice to see he's still around, he's yet another of the 
people the Vorkosigans are good at choosing, obviously.
If he got a promotion for Vervain, which is quite likely, he'd be a captain
at that point. Nine years to admiral is still fast, but it's possible, especially
on Barrayar. If Jole was Sergyaran, and Aral appointed him in charge of
planetary defence, he'd move up the promotion ladder quickly.
