Productivity DNS hack

Taking time off to enjoy internet content is good until it becomes a time-consuming habit.

A good way to break out of a habit is to add some friction. Something easy to become a little bit difficult can make a big difference, a pause before going through the motion of the default behaviour.

# /etc/hosts##
# Host Database
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting. Do not change this entry.
## localhost broadcasthost
::1 localhost

# Artificial friction

# Not quite ready to give up all my time sinks

Browsers have some local caches, so you might need to fiddle around a bit or restart for these to take in. Worst case, enjoy them one more time!
