Is it possible to block SevenForums at certain times?

Every time I do my homework, I get carried away and go on SF. Whether I read posts or actually post in a thread, there's always something.

So, is there a program that will allow me to block SF from let's say:
Monday-Thursday 4.30pm-8.30pm

Of course, I could block the website in my anti-virus but it would be rather tedious to keep blocking and unblocking it. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I could always ban you? That would at least keep you from the posting part.


Could try out Parental Controls time limits, and/or Windows Live Family Safety Filter.

Jaidyn, all that's needed is a touch of self-control, nothing more, nothing less.

You could always remove WSF from your favourites while you're studying, but not sure what Brink & Co. would say about that.

lolk, a ban would be nice. Anyway, I'll try the Parental Controls. Thanks.

EDIT: For parental controls, you need another standard user account. I only have to one admin account on my computer.

I normally get my work done, and I normally get A's and A+'s, but I have no self control when it comes to SF. As for the bookmarks, I don't have an SF bookmark. I just type in 's' and the first thing that comes up is SevenForums.

13 is a fine age to learn self control.

Self control is what made you ask the question in the first place So I figure that as you are half way there, you should manage quite nicely with just a bit more effort!!

Ps even I'll admit it is hard to stay away lol
