It is a good time to be a parent, especially if you have an espionnage and/or policing gene in you. Just in case it's not enough for you to keep tabs on every single key your kids press on their computer keyboard, there's also a standalone accessory that goes directly inbetween your phone line and computer, meaning it only works for dial-up and DSL customers.

With the device, you can create a "tamper-resistant" timer that will switch off the Internet connection to that computer after a specified amount of time. There is no special computer synchronization/driver/software needed.Here's the official copy:

"The compact, unobtrusive The WebGuard Programmable Internet Timer is simple to use and installs easily between the computer modem and wall jack. Touch-pad programming is as easy as setting an alarm clock, requiring no software and no PC interface. The programming mode is accessible by password only, and even the jacks are tamperproof, so the device can't be bypassed by sneaky kids."

It's available for $100.
