But the source code is free and others have.
Try these for Windows:
There's also a Linux version:
You would add http://twitter.com to your block list, which would prevent you from accessing the twitter website.
And adding http://api.twitter.com would prevent your twitter application from connecting.
These URLs may change, but this should get you started.
Hopefully you don't need them. But TheNextWeb wrote some basic instructions with pictures.
That's the idea.
"But, but but..." you say.
Seriously, chill out. It's not the end of the world.
The timer will run out and the internet will come back again. In the meantime, you may find comfort in curling up in a ball under your desk and rocking back and forth for a while.
We don't know what you did or why you would do follow instructions found on the internet before reading this FAQ. Lesson learned right? Good luck!
Yes, and you can learn about it here Tweaking Max Block Length and Block Length Interval.
We block all sites that run on the same servers as a site on your block list. For some larger sites, this can be surprising.
If that doesn't work, set the timer for 1 minute, do another block, and try again once the time has expired.
If that doesn't work, SelfControl blocks websites based on the machine the site is hosted at, not the actual website address. Sometimes this won't work that well. Try adding other subdomains of the website (e.g. new.facebook.com in addition to facebook.com).
This is a known bug that happens occasionally for a small fraction of users. Read closely: Fill out the form under SelfControl 00:00 Bug on visitsteve.com/contact and you'll get a fix in no time.
In the meantime: chill out, take some deep breaths, and get some perspective. People lived without the internet before and you're going to make it through this.
The problem you mention is not a problem with the program, but a setting in OS X. You can learn more and solve it by searching the web like this. Good luck!
Change the time of the block and add something to the blacklist, then try again.
This seems to be an issue with Firefox, mainly. Clear your browser cache, restart your browser, and your problem should go away.
This is usually because you have nothing on your blocklist and/or the timer is set to 0.
Yes. using :port or *:port notation, gives some flexibility. For example, if you wanted to run torrents and do nothing else, the following steps might help:
Yes. Under File > Save. Or Command-S. Just like saving everything else on a mac.
Maybe you could even post the file on your website to share. Unless it's embarrassing.
BUT hey, you could do it. This is a free and open source project and you are welcome to alter the software however you like. Or you could hire someone to. It might cost less than you expect. We'd also be interested in seeing your code and incorporating your possibly awesome ideas so consider forking the project here on github.
I hired someone on vworker.com. You could try that.
