For all those who spend far too much time on Mumsnet and want a foolproof method of stopping themselves without asking MN Towers to ban them...

Jangly posted this link on another thread yesterday and it stopped me peeking on Mumsnet this morning so I got 3 hours uninterrupted work done. Am going to turn it on again this afternoon. It's a program blocker, you can turn it on so that you can't access Explorer for as long as you set it for. The only downside is that if you need the www for work you obviously can't access it. But even so, it's good. As it does it program by program, it doesn't block your e-mails. You can block any other program as well. I just felt it was my duty to share it with you all!!!"

I know. Isn't it brilliant?

I shall be using it next week when the kids are back at school and I have to finish my assignments.

Will try again now...

Shame you can't set somethign to individual sites. I've been trygn to work all morning, but my heart isn't in it. So I end up on here, and now dt2 has smashed a lamp shade because I wasn't watching him.

but what if you need to use the internet to work? This is my problem... I'm always using Firefox when working, and then it's so easy to just pop into MN for a bit..... wish I could block the URL or something.
