    Hi

    I just want to block a list of websites for a specified period of time

    e.g. I just want a program that does this:

    [​IMG]

    RescueTime does this. But its 7 dollars every month, and it logs all of your work session and a whole bunch of other worthless stuff.

    Ideas?

    Edit you hosts file

    Put:
    127.0.0.1 youtube.com
    127.0.0.1 whatever.com

    Save.

    Flush the dns cache (maybe).

    Done.

    try the LeechBlock add-on for Firefox:

    Code:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/leechblock/
    I think that does exactly what you are looking for
