Agreed on using DNS as a filter solution because it covers all Internet devices in the house (assuming they all use the same public IP address). OpenDNS is a great choice because it has a single filter console and is free for homes. Details of my setup are here: http://momjian.us/main/blogs/blog/2012.html#February_21_2012_2

The "Turnabout Intruder" (TOS episode 79) was the last filmed episode (though not the last broadcast). The episode ends with a down-beat Kirk/Spock/Scotty walking down the corridor. Was that down-beat ending chosen to reflect the sadness of the final episode? I know this was a long time ago, but I always wondered about this.
