Increase your productivity in Linux by 200% or more with a single command!

I found an amazing way to increase productivity by a large amount with one simple command! Simply run this command:

sudo bash -c "echo -e \"### Sorry guys, I'll return when I have less deadlines\n127.0.0.1 reddit.com\n127.0.0.1 www.reddit.com\n127.0.0.1 slashdot.org\" >> /etc/hosts"

I’m not quite sure what it is about this, but I immediately noticed work was getting done much sooner!

A note for those not familiar with hosts and other sarcasm-deficient folks: This command makes the computer use localhost for the IP address of Reddit and slashdot, preventing you from accessing those sites.  In a pinch, this command can help people like me that suffer from a lack of self-control when it comes to online distractions…  I’ll return some day…

    Thank you for this simple tip. I tried it already before, but I had found myself removing this blacklisting all the time. I got fired from my job. Don’t do that.
