How can I make it as difficult as possible to connect to the Internet from my "work computer"?

I can't work. I need to work. But I'm here and on dozens of other sites.

"Restrict access to your laptop's MAC address on the router - then you'll need to go to another machine and disable it before you can move on.

You could also block port 80 to your machine ONLY at certain hours of the day when you're meant to be working."

"I recommend Leechblock if you use Firefox. You can use it to set the time you are allowed to access timewasting sites.

If you use another browser then the hosts file solution would work (but might be too course).

You should also make it as hard as possible to launch distracting programs and urls. So remove all shortcuts, remove bookmarks, and maybe even disable autocompletion of urls etc. You want to increase the effort of wasting time until it's easy to just do some work."
