If you're like me, you may have found that your obsession with mgoblog (and correspondingly, twitter, facebook, etc.) has gotten to the point where your work or study performance is getting affected to a degree with which you are less than comfortable, you may find this to be a handy tool. (For Windows users only)
It's a small little script that blocks web sites temporarily. Any time you double-click it, all of the sites at the top of the file become blocked, and any time you double-click it again, those sites become available again. I plan on using it to keep me on task during work hours (after I finish this anyway) and during lunch I'll come and see if anything's been posted while I was being busy. That's the plan, anyway...
I don't claim to be an expert on scripting, but from what I can tell it appears to be pretty safe and successful when run, and other tech sites seem to advocate for it as well.
In order to add blocked websites you have to open the file in something like notepad and add the list of websites at the top of the file, save it and close it again. Make sure that you don't set the text editor as the default means of opening the file.
As always, if other users find issues with the file please let me know and I'll rescind my recommendation, but for now I'm hoping this will help (and I have a feeling I'm not alone here). See you at noonish EST!
