All,
My name is Chris, and I have a problem. I'm an email and facebook addict. Now that admission is out of the way...

Is there any program or script I can install which would allow me to temporarily (and irreversibly) block websites such as gmail, facebook, and msnbc? If you are familiar with the gmail 'Take a Break' feature, I am looking for something like this. Ideally I would be able to control the domains which are blocked and add/remove them at will.

Thanks for your help,
Chris

you can use parental control features of some security suites for this, or the built in parental controls in your web browser

Nah, because then I'd be able to just go in and enable/disable them at will. I'm looking for something that once I click 'Block' it would be blocked for a solid 2 hours, or whatever amount of time.

there is really nothing like that, that a person with the correct rights or permissions would not be able to do...
have someone else enable the parental controls and not tell you the password...it can give you quota times and such.
