    Kinda sad how you have to bribe kids these days.

    When I was a kid, dad would've just taken my access away. Period. End of story. Of course, the interwebz didn't exist yet ...

    Or he could just block access at the router, or admin his computer to death with local policies. He just took the easy way out. I have kids myself and they can bet their bottom dollar their dad isn't going to be begging or barganing over anything.
