Tip to stop procrastination: Freedom

'Freedom frees you from distractions, allowing you time to write, analyze, code, or create.'

How often do you check your email a day? Go on facebook? Check the news? Is that really necessary or is it merely an enormous and unwelcome distraction from your work? If the answer is yes, try this: Freedom, a program that disconnects your computer from the internet for the amount of time you want to. You cannot fool the program, the only way to get connected to internet again, is to either wait or restart your computer.
It works for me!

The only thing is that you need to specify a certain amount of minutes. If you go away from your computer, the clock stops counting. I would personally prefer a program that would enable me to set a certain time (e.g. I want to be offline until 1pm). If you know of any other program that can do this, let me know!
