Good day, fellow bees!
Mostly I am able to stay clean of any distracting content for months, but from times to times I get into a binge mode with content, that I don’t consider worthwhile.
While the binge is going on, I know that I will regret it later, I know that I am in some sort of trance without being able to rip myself out of it (am maybe going to build a solution for this in the future).
After some time (mostly one or two days), I manage to get all rational about it and develop strategies to get prevent this in the future.
I would like to add a tool to my toolbox, that allows me to block websites through pattern matching using regular expressions.
So far I have only found tools like Leechblock, that allow me to use Regex for matching something in the URL, but as Youtube is such a big part of my ever worsening internet addiction, I would like to be able to block something based on the website title.
So my latest unbelievable fruitless obsession for one or two days was this (do not read on, if you have been or are into strategy games and want to stay clear of them in the foreseeable future).
Gameplays of Hearts of Iron 4
I know! Don’t look at me that way, I know!
So finally my question:
Does anyone of you professional self conditioning self quantifiers maybe know a tool that I could use to cope with the growing list of things, that I don’t want to have in my life, because I want to have them in my life?
Basically I want to have something, that blocks a web page, if the title matches for a regex that I specified. Is there a tool of that you know, that can do this?
For the last escapade for example:
Adding a regex, that matches “Hearts of Iron” to a blacklist that then blocks a web page, if the title contains matches.
If not, I may build my own, any experience with this or open source browser add-ons for blocking that I could learn from / use as a basis?
