Paul Reade Tech: free software to limit internet time? (27) RE: Tech: free software to limit internet time? 08 Jan 11


Perhaps instead of some sort of limiter on Firefox etc. you could look at including something in your novel writing software.

Assuming you use Microsoft Word for your writing, it would be fairly straightforward to have a VBA macro that would interrupt anything else you were doing every few minutes, with a pop-up that must be clicked on to continue.

My company specialises in providing Microsoft Office VBA software, mainly in Excel but we have also used Word and would be happy to advise.
