    I am running CYBERsitter v9 on my system and I have it (I think) geared low just block Porn. My problem is that its data base (I think) even blocks stuff on this BB and veiwing the news day to day is nearly impossible. Any suggestion on what to do? If not any suggestions on a program that is a little less demanding?

    A simpler and probably cheaper solution can be found in a router. The newer Linksys routers can block certain websites by name, and also by keywords found within the website. You can also program it to only allow Internet access at certain times, and to certain computers. To access the GUI (graphical user interface), you plug your computer into it with a cat5 cable, and type in 192.168.1.1 into your browser address bar. The default setting is there is no username, and the default password is admin. Once inside the GUI, you can look around, and become familiar with the inner workings of the router. You can read the manual that comes with the router, on where to click and what to do in order to set these services up. It varies between routers, and the firmware version.

    And, if you haven't done so, change the username and password as soon as you can!

    I am assuming that you use cyber sitter for your kids?
    I thought I would let you know that you need to be careful with that
    They are not totally reliable.
    BUt you shoulud be able to completly allow this site, at least most such software does.
