True, monday mornings, brain dead.

We could have them authenicate sort of before getting on the web.  We do
this in our open labs right now.  Everyone has to ssh to a kerboros login
and once they have input their name and password they are granted access
until they close the ssh window.  We do this using AUTHPF which is part of
OBSD.  I can't see making academics login everyday but I could make them run
a "system check" or "security check" before logging in to the internet.

There's 2 problems:

1) Not all the internet is the web.  If they're only using the machine to do
POP mail checks, how do you redirect to a web site?

2) (related to 1) - How do you tell the user they've failed?  You might get
unlucky and the user actually turned off Windows Messenger when you told
to, so you can't spam them with a popup explaining the problem.....
