I would suggest you learn some self control.

This. You can learn how to control yourself, just don't tell yourself that you can't do it.

Some routers can block websites/programs from getting on the internet. Most of the ones who can have the ablility to set it up for specific times of the day where you can't get on.

When you're typing in the password for the program, just cover your eyes and hit a bunch of random numbers and letters.

Or just learn some self control.....

there is a program called winroute that acts as a firewall and has site blocking capabilities. (that costs though)

you could also use a proxy server and set it to block certain sites at certain times of day.

(in fact it's the proxy server part of winroute that does this. -we used it at a place I once worked at to block certain types of websites during the day, but opened access up at lunch times or the evening).

You are actually serious about blocking yourself from a site... alright.. Ah. I got nothing.. Just don't go to that site? It's not hard.. Just don't type it in. Saves you time possibly money and HDD space by not installing anything.

A combination of using opendns (do a google search) and your routers own website blocker (if your has one) should do the trick.

you could edit your hosts file so that certain sites just point to google, or to your local host, or something.

thought that won't be password protected, nor time limited.
