This is why the rest of the world uses ICD-10 coding.
I think I might send off my next résumé as a blank sheet of paper, sure to get the job.
When I was first starting out in IT I worked at a reasonably large high school and found the best way to filter was using squid and have a large blacklist automatically updated weekly and use a log analyser such as Sarg to generate reports on a daily basis and anything that seemed out of place or got a lot of traffic and wasn’t related to education would go on the blacklist. Of course none of this was available off the shelf back then, but it’s still probably the best way to go about it considering that it’s a non-profit school. As for facebook, it should be blocked in any school environment, there is nothing on there of any education value.
I don’t know the age range the OP is talking about, kind of seems contradictory. People not able to protect themselves but yet have shame.. doesn’t really make sense.
I'm running the Lars Op Den Kamp PVR build of Eden with tvheadend for the TV tuners on Oneiric and use a logitech rumblepad 2 for the controller. Set it up with zsnes and dolphin-emu and can access these without even leaving the couch. The addons repos are great, adding quite a lot of features you could only dream of in other media centres. I rarely have issues even with the latest un-stable builds and when I do there is already a patch out for it.
As for Boxee being for dummies, XBMC isn't hard at all anymore thanks to projects like OpenELEC. I built a system for a friend using OpenELEC and it could not be easier.
May all your PUSHes be POPped.
