It's Saturday


You probably shouldn’t be on the internet. Here’s a little tool to help.

I downloaded Freedom about a year ago and it’s helped me gain access to creativity and tranquility over and over again since I downloaded it. It does this by wiping out the ability for your computer to connect to the internet for up to 8 hours. It works with either Mac or PC.

You can also download OmmWriter if you want to get some writing done while you’re offline. It just came out with a new version that has all these calming sounds and colours. Combine both of these apps and I promise you’ll have an interesting day.

    Have you checked out ‘plaintext’ for the iPad (if you have one)? Very Omniwriter-esque (which I’m a big fan of btw)…

    I use StayFocusd for Chrome which is great will check out Freedom now. Thanks for the tips!

    Heard you mention on Twitter that your comments aren’t working. Has everything resolved yet?

    I LOVE OmmWriter (first heard about it from you, again on Twitter.) Since then I’ve tried to write most of my posts in it. Of course, when trying to share a bunch of links it can be a pain and I resort back to TextEdit.
