    Okay, basically i need to revise for exams, but i am easily distracted. I want to limit my usage of youtube to less than an hour a day and i do not have the determination to do it manually? is there anyway of blocking a sight for specific amount of times or any programs which i can download that do it for me? I use Firefox but anything to stop me wasting hours is fine. thanks :D

    Gah I know the feeling! (Hence why I am on mac rumors instead of reading my game engine architecture book). I've thought about trying to block the internet from the router level and randomly changing my password to the router so that if I want to break my internet rules I have to redo my network, (which means re-adding my printer to the network which is insanely difficult.) That alone would keep me from re-doing my network.

    The problem is is that I have to constantly look up documentation and such so I need the internet for school : / Oh, and right now I am an online student so thats a factor too.
