No, no, no - not even close to geeky. ;-)

Actually our problem there is starting and stopping and being 
interrupted.  And 2 kids and 1 kitchen timer. And we are busy and don't 
always note their start time.

My first thought was a cron job that refreshes their allocation at 
midnight.  Say put 60 minutes into ~.timekeeper.  Then check that at 
logon time and again every minute while they are logged on and force a 
logoff when it gets to 0.  Is there a semi-graceful way to force a logoff?

But then I wondered hasn't someone already done this?  It would seem to 
be an old task.  Hence my posting to the list.

Thanks for your comeback.
