A couple of weeks ago I grounded my son from the computer jail. Recently I discovered he has been waiting till we go to sleep and sneaking my laptop up to his room, apparently he has figured out my password. I could just change the password but that wouldn't be much fun.
What I want to do is use the hosts file to redirect from myspace.com to a nice little note from me just so he is aware of dads all seeing and all knowing superpowers evil. I did this once before with my daughter back when we were using windows 95. The effect was priceless. I can't seem to make it work with XP any help would be appreciated.

I usually do my redirects in my hosts file. You would put in the ip address of a webpage that says "Dad Sees All." After the ip you put the webpage name www.myspace.com.

192.168.0.1 www.myspace.com

now if you want the easy answer in your hosts file just put
127.0.0.1 www.myspace.com
That blocks it.

If it were me, I'd let him do it for about a week, then CTRL+H to read his history file, you never know where kids (even really good kids) can end up on the net - before blocking him completely. At least then you know what you are dealing with and might thwart any future problems. Goog luck.

I agree with you, John, but it sounds like Dad is already aware of what son is doing.  He's banned him - good for you, Dad!  One of the problems with kids is that they're so technologically competent, they don't expect their parents to be (so many aren't).  I used to log my boys' AIM conversations, and found quite a few things that needed 'adjustment'.  They never did figure out how I knew, but they knew they'd get caught sooner or later, so they usually gave up  evil

Most kids know to cover their tracks and erase any inappropriate websites from the history file.I've been using keyloggers on the kids for years. If you've got teenagers, they are priceless. I know passwords, conversations, websites etc. "Trust but verify". I also have all the monitors facing the hall door so I can see as I walk by. If I notice them minimizing when they hear me coming then I know they are probably getting ready to get in trouble.
When I did a redirect in win95, I could use the line "dadnote.htm  myspace.com" in the hosts file but with winxp It seems it will only work with an ip address.

I like the keylogger idea.

I installed Vista Home Premium and it has built in monitoring software. I can lock them out at certain times of the day, and get to see what programs they ran, websites visited etc.

Out ISP also gave us K9 Web Protection (Home edition is Free) (http://www.k9webprotection.com/) and that also logs and blocks sites just like Vista - so some of the features are redundant, but with Vista I have to enter the blocked web sites, and with K9, the program checks its database of sites and contact that should be blocked based on the settings you set.

My kids are 8, 7, 3 and 7 months so, I started while they were young. Also, their computer never leaves the open family room, and they won't have a laptop in their room until much older.

had the same problem with my youngest.  he was in his early teens and it was the early days of the "new" technology  smiley.  he thought he was good about covering his tracks, but didn't understand that mom learned computer from basic on up. fortunately, pictures of naked women didn't eat your hard drive or spam your computer in those days. i think the newer programs have actually made tracking them harder. 
blocking them is easier.

my solution was to take the computer away after he ignored the 1st warning.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
