I maybe off here, maybe I should post this in the Software wants, but I want to write a VB program, that can be controlled from a consol for a Cyber Cafe.
What I want to do, is have a program run, the user will log on, and then when his/her time is up a message will flash... "Times up Save your work and exit".
If the user does not save and exit, a message goes to a PC where the cyber cafe owner is sitting and a message will flash saying PC # 6 is past due, and then the owner can send a message "LOG off Now! Or I will terminate your session"
Or maybe the owner can reset the timer and give the user an extra half hour or what have you.
All these parameters need to be flexible, so I guess they could be set by the owner and then adjusted as he goes along.
What ideas you guys may have will get me started. This is a network of about 25 PCs, and some clients stay on for ever with out paying for the extra time, and others are better they come up and pay for an extra hour.
