|Hi all. I'm sad to say that I'll be leaving linux for an undetermined amount of time. And no, it's not due to crashes, or confusion, or anything like that: I'm leaving linux because I'm addicted to porn and am desprately seeking to kick the habit. I've searched around for internet filters and dan's gaurdian seems to come up alot. Well, that program is not free and it also looks like it's difficult to configure. It also seems like any others require quite a bit of tweaking to get working. The reason I'm going back to windows is because of a program called X3 watch. It's a simple, free program that watches every site you goto. Then, if the titles of those sites contain anything questionable, they are cataloged and emailed to an accountability partner of your choice. Imagine if your mom was the one getting that email with all the naughty sites you'd been to. That would be a pretty effective method! Also, it catalogs whenever you shut the program down. So, if the record shows some nuaghty sites, and then the program is turned off, well, you get the picture.|
So, I'm going back to windows which I really don't want to do in hopes that I can kick the habit. Until I'm able to honestly control myself or a decent internet filter shows up for ubuntu, I'll stay away. It's sad too becuase ubuntu brings me so much joy when I use it. It would be sweet if a duplicate of X3 watch could be made for linux. It seems liker a pretty simple program to me since all it does it monitor the address line, rather than actually block sites. But alas, kicking this habit is more important to me than ubuntu, so I must leave.
Also note that I have talked with several christians about switching from windows to ubuntu and had them say no becuase of this very reason. I know that I'd at least be able to convert a few people to ubuntu if there was better support in this area.
Anyway, I love ubuntu and I love this community, and I will definitely be back, I just need to get some priorities straight. Thanks for all your help. Oh, and if any of you are the praying type, I'd appreciate if you'd pray for me while I try this new track.
Thanks and goodbye
