Can a Pi be used in some way to prevent Dementia sufferers making landline calls to a specific number?

My Mum has Dementia and takes great delight in phoning a mail order company and ordering things she cant afford. We have tried reasoning with her but that doesn't seem to work. Also she doesn't always remember what she has ordered. My sister and I have Financial Power of Attorney and have requested ...

Re: Really odd wifi behaviour! LXDE kills it...

Thanks for the feedback, but I thought I was in the root, I haven't added any users and I had logged in as Pi password raspberry which I thought was the root.

Also how can I change the interfaces file like the example?
What can I use to edit text files at command line?

Re: Really odd wifi behaviour! LXDE kills it...

Sounds brilliant but as a newbie I can't seem able to get to either run the unbind statement or change the interfaces file.
I don't seem to have rights to do this even though I am logged in as Pi in the Debian distro.

Could someone give me step by step instructions please
