Thank you to all who have answered my “new computer” question. I really appreciate the responses
I have one more computer-based question. So, like many of us, I’m trying to cut down on time I waste on the internet. Not super great at impulse control, and so if I want to stop a bad habit usually I need to erect one or more barriers.
What I was thinking was that maybe I could leave my computer on sleep (and make a list of things I needed to do/look up whenever they came to mind offline) and then take it off sleep 3-4x a day for about half and hour each time to do those tasks. Would going in and out of sleep mode 3-4x/day harm my computer?
Actually, it’s not really the computer that’s the problem so much as the internet. Is there a way to set limits on your browser time? I know in OS X you can create an alternate user who can’t access the internet. However, when I created the alternate user, I didn’t realize that he wouldn’t have access to all my documents, which I need.
Thank you very much for the responses!
