Right, but he wants to use facebook yet not allow anyone else on the
machine to use facebook. Me, I'd just threaten the hell outa everyone
and that would be that. Of course I'd then be a complete jerk with only
the dog loving me. 

Or, the OP could just loosen up and let others have a time allotment of
facebook usage... unless there are factors we are not privy to. At least
at home you can monitor what they are doing on facebook, instead of them
going elsewhere to login. :) Ric
