Lockout is a tool for slackers that browse the Web, read the news, and write email all day instead of working. It prevents users from feeling miserable and apathetic and improves productivity by enforcing discipline through a variety of methods, including not allowing you to view Web sites or become root to secretly change things back (you slacker!).

Release Notes: A status option was added that tells the user when lockout will lift its work-imposing rule. Several new ways of specifying the duration of enforced discipline were added, including the absolute time at which to lift the lock. The documentation has been improved.
Release Notes: The permission of the file that contains a copy of root's encrypted password is now always 0600, making it no longer dependent on root's umask.
