Anyone using internet-blocking software? Do you find it helpful, or do you find yourself 'cheating' often? With Freedom, you have to reboot your computer to 'unblock' the internet. I hate to restart my computer so I'm hoping this is a strong enough deterrent to stick to the offline periods.
Sorry for not being helpful, just wanted to thank you for a good laugh.

That people pay for a program doing nothing more than disconnect a comp of the net made me laugh to tears.
In cases when that's necessary (rare - I do it on boxes I suspect being infested) I pull the cat5.

When having net access distracts you from reading; you don't want to read.
