Continued Surfing: Computer Demands a Good Reason

This is pretty funny, and useful. Oblomovka has hacked a plug-in for you overzealous webservers: if you stay on the Web too long, your computer will not only remind you of your drift-from-the-real-world, it will require a good reason to allow you to keep surfing.

Once installed, you will be pestered every 5 minutes to make a case for your further web browsing. If your work is done, just cancel the dialog box and quit the app; if you’re not finished (and you really need to keep zipping around the Interweb a bit longer), insert a virtual nickel by typing a summary of what you’re working on. This buys you another five minutes. And so on.
