    Indiana?... We named the dog Indiana!

    Parental Guides

    How is this done in Linux?...

    *Allow a user to be logged in during certain hours.

    *Limit certain web sites, or a set of sites that aren't appropriate for a given age group.

    *We know that logs are everywhere in Linux... How does one manage logs to monitor the above mentioned activities?

    I'd like to setup an account for my step-daughter, but not without taking care of these issues first. Would a search at Fresh Meat or some other Linux software sites be worth the effort, or should I just look into writing my own scripts to handle these tasks? I'm writing this to ask amongst friends (some of you are parents also), but I will do some Googling as well.
