padded cell


 
Where you put lusers so they can't hurt anything.  A program
that limits a luser to a carefully restricted subset of the
capabilities of the host system (for example, the "rsh"
utility on USG Unix).  Note that this is different from an
iron box because it is overt and not aimed at enforcing
security so much as protecting others (and the luser) from
the consequences of the luser's boundless naivet'e (see
naive).  Also "padded cell environment".

    Nací en la ciudad de Guadalajara y el idioma inglés aunque no me atrae mucho, considero es necesario solo como una herramienta de comunicación básico. Lo he estudiado en diferentes etapas de mi vida desde chico. Ademas cuento con parientes en Canadá y E. U. A. Quiero mejorar en el inglés por lo menos un 30% más.
