internet productivity for dummies

I'm trying to install some web-blocking functions on both Internet Explorer and Mozilla, but can't seem to get what I want. I'm blocking IE through restricting the content directly on the Options tabs, and using Leechblock for Mozilla. So talk to me like I'm stupid ... what I want to do, simply, is block all .com domains, except for 2 or 3 specific sites. Why can't I figure out how to do this?

I am looking for a service that will let me create messages that interrupt me at randomized intervals while I'm using my laptop.

Need an alternative to MyHQ for my homepage(s).

Need to find an alternative to MyHQ.com. MyHQ is a web-based homepage that is simply lists of links that you can add to, customize, and organize into categories. You set it as your homepage, and voila!, every place you regularly visit on the internet is right in front of you. Their site is currently down, which has happened before, but this time I fear its for reals. I am literally lost without it (not to mention the 100+ organized links that I no longer have access to).

Simple application usage timer?

As part of my new-year-self-improvement kick, I'd like to track the amount of time I spend browsing the web. Is there an app that will track how long a single application (in this case, Opera) is open each day, and show the total time somewhere on the desktop? [more inside]
