comment How can I install this programmable switch where a neutral is not present?
On a side note. NEC 2011 added section 404.2(C) to article 404, which requires a neutral at each switch outlet unless there is the possibility of easily adding one in the future.

comment Is it OK to have ground wire connected to breaker box wall instead of neutral bus?
"probably fine", and electricity don't mix. There is no way of telling if this installation is done properly without seeing it, so this answer is completely speculation. Please provide some facts to support your statements.

It's hard to see the gauges, they are washed out due to the flash.

Most panels have a neutral bus and a ground bus both of which are connected to each other, the service entrance neutral, and the panel. All of this is bonded to the grounding electrode. However, without knowing exactly what he did, what brand panel it is, and your location, it's impossible for us to tell you if it's acceptable or not. If you could add some more information and a few pictures, that would help a lot.

comment How can I replace a ceiling fan with a regular light fixture?
Can you list all the wires in the ceiling box (don't forget to describe which cable each wire is a part of)? It sounds like the feeder from the panel goes to the ceiling box, and there should be another cable that runs between the ceiling box and the switch box on the wall.

I'll try to add a diagram of the jig described above, when I get a few minutes to create a model.
