Escape from Knab
Rivercity (Can it be played?)
JASON Energy City, Roller Coaster

Once you've installed it into Firefox and restarted, you'll see the cluster of gray balls light up and start spinning when they sense downloadable content.
Just click on the down-triangle next to the colorful balls and choose .mp4 if it's an option (.flv files are not as friendly for most systems).
More detail (and other, more complicated methods) on this older post.

Schools and libraries may not receive E-Rate discounts unless they adopt policies addressing:
•Educating minors about appropriate online behavior
•Interacting with adults on social networking sites and chat rooms (THIS IS NOT PROHIBITING IT)
Highlight a student's username; Google them; Find out as much as possible, both good and bad.

I can think of
- Firefox (and extensions--I'll list those below)
- Adobe Acrobat Reader
- MW Snap (screencapture)
- Antivirus (what kind?)
- MagicDisk (if you have kids' software that is CD-dependent)
- Handbrake (ripping DVDs to MP4)
- PDF995 (to make pdfs or docs into jpgs for printing at Costco)
- Bookmark Current Tab Set
- Google Gears
What default settings should be changed on Windows 7?
