Quitting cold turkey

$ tail -n3 /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1       reddit.com
127.0.0.1       slashdot.org
127.0.0.1       digg.com

I made this change to my /etc/hosts a few weeks ago and have not looked back since.

The only side effect I've observed is that I now go to Google News about once an hour, but that is probably less than I used to check Reddit, and Google News does not have anywhere near the addictive qualities of Reddit.

  1. I removed Reddit and Digg from my Google Reader last week (Slashdot a couple of months ago). Boy, they take our time... :)
