/* Introduction */
The Playstation II comes with a feature for DVD playback
called Parental Control.  For those of you who don't know
what it is, a Parental Control makes it so that parents
can block out features so that their children cannot play
games and/or movies with graphical content and sexual

/* Notes from the author */
I say this to any of you parents who think that you can 
stop this freedom from your kids or husband, yeh 
right...  This is the freedom of information age, you'll 
never stop it, everything has a backdoor.

/* To do */
This is quite simple; in fact I did it in fewer than 30 
seconds...  If you'd like to go ahead and crack your 
parental controls for your Playstation II Console, do 
the following:

Load a DVD/Game which is above your current control 
  level (in other words if itís blocked, use this cd).
Choose "temporarily change parental control modes to 8"
Press Select
Type in the code: 7444

/* What you did */
Now, it will say "Code Deleted".  Please keep in mind that 
you have to set a new code for Parental Control level 8...  
Most parents will think that they just forgot the code, just 
don't let them see you watching porn.

/* The End */
I wrote this article because I was bored and I had to find 
the parental control code for a PSX that was "acquired" for 
me.  Now the code is something only I know, and itís set at 
level 8, so in other words, everything goes :x.
