Set Time Limit on Online Activities, Games, Etc.

TIME's UP! is a software utility that lets one set time limits for students' use of online services, programs, etc. Designed for home users but suited to labs and classrooms as well, the program lets an adult set time limits -- daily or weekly -- on use of particular programs.
