Temptation Blocker

Internet addicted? Never getting work done due to surfing, blogging or chatting?

Here is the best tool I downloaded in years: The "Temptation Blocker". This small program allows to temporarily disable programs like Firefox, Skype or Outlook. You can e.g. block your internet browsers for, say, 2 hours. The only way out (before time is up) is by typing in a random 32 character code, which is a painful hurdle. Brilliant!

P.S. Mac users with procastrination tendencies have a nice alternative: "Mac Freedom", a program that disables your WiFi connection.
