Makes me almost wish my 8 year old was 14 months again just to use it.

Do you have anything for continually navigating to Harry Potter and S Club 7 sites?

There is another program similar to this called BabyType, at http://www.raize.com.

I'd searched the web (tucows and download) for something like BabyType and couldn't find it.  Oh, well.  I probably still would have written my own.  It fits a slightly different space (computer literate parents).  It's free, source is available, is configurable, has a cuter cursor and is very small.  (Mine might be better at catching Windows-U on machines with DirectX 8, but I don't have DX8 here and can't test it.)

But, I do love the way BabyType's kid says, "swash" and "backswash."  And BabyType does uninstall correctly.

raize.com shows NOTHING when viewed with Mozilla. Ouch.

When viewed with Opera, I noted that they charge $24 for their product. That's a winning argument for Maddie's Keyboard Pounder :-)

Yup, did it, was Mozilla's fault. But I downloaded the nightly build and it worked fine.

Not wishing to make this a Mozilla bug tracking thing, but raize.com seems to work fine in Moz 1.0
