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 computerkeyboard, 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."

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
