    Configure Samba and Squid in your Linux machine.

    you could edit the hostfile or use a web filter:

    Either use a DNS such as Open DNS as rdube mentioned above, or log in to your router or modem and you may find a setting to block websites or filter content. Just enable that on your office computer's IP address.

    That's what I do when I need to concentrate on work and not to get distracted with email or facebook.

    Hey Neut,

    I'd say you have several options depending on your needs. If you just want to block them for your own personal computer, you can install plugins for each browser, like StayFocusd for Chrome: [link removed]

    Or you can just use your Windows Hosts file as Mark described here:


    And of course Karl described a large-scale approach you can use to filter a whole network's access to the Internet:


    As you can see, you've got lots of options! Good luck!
