Overview

This is an example of output from the last command on the kids' computer here at The Hypertwins mad science laboratory. "benjy" and "zander" are the kids' accounts; "woozle" is mine. This shows one of the strengths of Linux as an operating system for kids to use, in that it gives a lot of information that parents may find useful (such as the fact that Benjamin was on the computer for over 3 hours on Sunday, October 8, when between the two of them they are supposed to be limited to two hours plus a bit).
