    Here's the thing- I have a MAJOR problem with procrastination- I just can't seem to concentrate on work. Anyway I've discovered the Pomodoro technique- which basically means you have a short period of work e.g. 25 minutes followed by a 5 minute break and repeat until the work is done.

    I know theres several applications which provide timers etc. for work/breaks, but is there software which does this as well as completely blocking access to the web etc. during the work times?

    I think it's called a pair of scissors to your ethernet cable

    I use the Pomodoro Technique, although i've got it down to 5 mins work followed by a 15 minute break :thumbsup:

    I doubt there would be software to do that, but you could always get someone else to check up on what you're doing when your working. That usually works for me.

    Going to the library might work better. Or you could just change your wireless password/remove ethernet cable as suggested above

    Leechblock add on - it blocks the website you specify after a certain amount of time.

    Better than me, I went as far as buying the egg timer, that was it.
