I'm interested in restricting my own use of time-killing websites at home so as to increase my productivity. I see that there are a number of apps or programs that do this in different ways, and some of these techniques would be good. But I haven't found one that works in the way that I think would work best for me. Is something like that available? Details on the kind of functionality I'm looking for are below. P.S. I'm willing to pay up to maybe $50 for the right kind of software. [more inside]
I'd like to see a weekly breakdown of my personal computer usage. Showing total time spent using different applications, and total time spent visiting different websites. Just to monitor my productivity and see where I'm spending/wasting the most time. Can anyone recommend a (preferably free) mac application?
Recently I performed a clean installation of Windows 10 (which, by the way, I very much like despite not-so-subtle bugs creeping up a tad more than I'd like) and would like app and Chrome add-on recommendations. [more inside]
I cannot seem to find a good app that will let me: 1) have recurring tasks 2) allow me to check them off as done (like disappear or strike or some other indicator) 3) presented in calendar form (not a "reminders" list). I don't ask for much. I have checked out many many free apps, none of which accomplish what I want. I'm sure this gem is a paid app and I will gladly fork over based on a suggestion, knowing my criteria. I have yet to find one that has all three of these requirements spelled out. Thanks!

Can anyone suggest good (and hopefully free) software that will prevent other applications from running during specified parts of the day? The idea is to block certain non-productive applications (media players, games, etc.) during the day when I should be working. Ideally it would allow me to specify which hours each program was blocked and to allow the programs to be unlocked with a password if needed.
