RE: [K12OSN] Instant Messanger

Just one concern.  Folks could still download the gaim src from, say, Sourceforge, unpack it in /home/studentdir, and compile/run it.  So, I would also recommend doing chmod 500 on /usr/bin/gcc, /usr/bin/g++, and /usr/bin/make.  Those who actually know how to install a compiler in their home directories are folks that you will have trouble stopping in any case (not impossible, just challenging).  But this ought to take care of 99.9% of 'em.

Thanks for all the ideas.  I sparked alot more interest than I thought I
would.  I did not do anything as fancy as alot of you have.  All
computers in the school that are for the kids are LTSP boxen so all I
really did was

chmod 500 /usr/bin/gaim

and no more instant messanger.  The few admin types that actually
understand the concept of IM can still use them becasue they are on
standalone XP home boxes.  Thanks for all th ideas.  I'll be filing
those away.
