Webtrate – fed up with wasting time on the web? This will definitely cure the problem


The web’s great, but boy does it suck up time. How many times have you started your day with great intentions only to turn round and find that you’ve spent the whole morning watching videos of hula cats? Yeah we know how it goes. There are tools to help, but in general they’re too easy to switch off. Until now.

Webtrate [Update: now called Stop Procrastinating] is a new software package for Windows and Mac which lets you set up an Internet block of your choice. You can set it to block the Internet for a period of time, but the really knockout feature is the option to set it to block the Internet on your computer for a period – even if you reboot the machine!


This means you’ll positively, absolutely have to get your work done before you can surf the kitties, and to make it even more compelling you can also write down your goals for the day at the same time, so you’ll have a moving record of how well you’ve done. Hard core. The program costs $7.99 and comes with a 30 day money back guarantee.
