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?

Computer! Make me a better person!

What apps do you use to help you stay focused on work? I'm looking for Mac and web apps. I don't have clinically diagnosable ADHD, but I'm curious about what's out there and can certainly use the help sometimes.

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).

Looking for a Firefox extension or alternative browser that allows for web pages to be grayed out (specifically images) a la Ghostzilla. [more inside]

Cool Stuff to Run In Your Webspace?

What free, open-source projects can I run in a privately accessible portion of my webspace that would be useful to me in terms of making things more practical in my own life (think Lifehacker-43 Folders kind of stuff)? I'd prefer Mefites' personal experiences with their own installs over linkage that you've seen but never tried — although I'll take either one. [more inside]

A weekend pass for online fun.

I'm on a Mac and my browser of choice is Opera. I was wondering if it would be possible to block a handful of sites entirely and only allow myself access on Sundays? [more inside]
