I use a chrome plug-in (stayfocusd) to help keep me from wasting my time on the internet while working from home. It works well in that I can specify how long I am able to surf a list of restricted sites during a specified time frame.
An example is I can only access my restricted sites (ex cnn.com, facebook, twitter) for 30 minutes between the hours of 8am and 4:30pm. Once I reach that 30 minute limit I can't view any of the restricted sites until 4:30pm or the next work day.
This works fine but there are many workarounds like using a different browser or uninstalling the plug-in.
Would it be possible for OpenDNS to add this feature? Having network-wide access control would be a great help to many people that have self-control/addiction issues such as myself. We all know that the internet can be a great tool and is essential for most but also a major time-drain with no way to effectively separate business from pleasure.
