Time Management

Hey, all.

I was  recently thinking about what a time-sucker all things internet-related can be.

Some of you may be interested in some apps available. For you Firefox users, LeechBlock (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4476/) can be configured to limit your time on specified websites. For example, I am gonna give myself 10 minutes on Facebook every two hours. If you’re on it and your ten minutes expires, you can have it just say “this site’s been leech-blocked” or you can have it send you to a more “productive” site (work-related) or something.

It’s easy to work with and configure. Once the site is blocked, you are unable to go and switch the settings until the time unblocks it.

For those of you that use Chrome (or if you have both browsers, and would be tempted to get around your controls) you can install StayFocused (https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/laankejkbhbdhmipfmgcngdelahlfoji)

These two apps are basically the same, just different in the way that they look.

That is all. I hope this benefits some of you.
