Timekpr: control user accounts

Timekpr is a utility to exercise fine-grained control over user accounts in a system. It is useful in an environment where the sysadmin wants to control the timeslots allocated for users of the system, for example, in a shared system which users can access remotely or a lab machine in a school. It is also effective as a parental control system. In brief, Timekpr lets you decide when a user can use the computer.
