Thanks, James.  It already is.

I reckon that I can customize each ~/home/ file, but this is not sysadmin friendly for a multitude of users. I do not have scripting skills. As it stands, a savvy kid and go edit/preferences and set his connection settings for a direct connection to the Internet thus circumventing the above file. To get to nakedness on the Internet, gets get savvy pretty fast.
