Security Is an Attitude

My kids love to play with the computers in the house. At four years old, both my daughters were logging in, playing games, even surfing the Web (barbie.com and cartoonnetwork.com have some great kids games). But they love to be creative and that means painting programs. When I want to see how good a program of this type is, I show my kids and let them go at it. If they're asking for it the next time they log in, I've got a winner. Requires: libSDL, libpthread, libSDL_image, libSDL_ttf, libSDL_mixer, libm, libesd (optional), libdl, libartsc, libX11, libXext, libjpeg, libpng, libz, libtiff, libfreetype, libvorbisfile, libvorbis, libogg, libsmpeg, glibc.
