    I got it installed but when I run it it says: “Nanny daemon is not started. To use the parental control, please start up the daemon.” Of course, it gives no hint as to how to start it. Grrrr. :roll:

    All people deserve very good life time and loans or just collateral loan will make it much better. Because people’s freedom is grounded on money.
