- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
Hints: sleep, date +"%u", logout
The sleep command will put the script to sleep for some period of seconds: 1hr 25min == 5100 seconds. The date +"%u" command returns the day-of-week number (1-7) where Monday == 1. So, this isn't a difficult script, and it should log the user (child) out after the specified amount of time. You could even set it up so that say 10 minutes before it expires it beeps the user so they know their time is just about up.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
