You forgot one more requirement: a windows operating system (probably some specific version too) Despite what many people think, other operating systems can be used with computers. Also, the 24-hour clock format is not actually called military time.

Hey, sorry bout not including that in the instructions.
I have to disagree with u about the military time.

stuuf (author)Fire02008-12-28

AFAIK no official reference uses the term "military time;" it's a semi-derogatory phrase used mainly by people who choose not to spend the 30 seconds to learn how to use it, as in "stop using military time, do I LOOK like I know how to subtract small integers?"

Good point

I don't understand and I think this is something I would like to do... Is the time entered the time the user can sign on or is it the time that they can't?...

Fire0 (author)havanacus2008-12-22

It's the time that they are allowed to be on...if that helps

Browncoat (author)Fire02008-12-23

So once it hits that time, it'll boot them off...?

Fire0 (author)Browncoat2008-12-23

Yeah, to my knowledge! I have not had use of it myself so I have not used it in a while.

Thank you, it does help...
