Damn good call. I'm on my computer trying to read something or watch a show and VS Code is just calling my name sometimes.
Of course, it's easy to have the problem in the other direction, where Reddit is only a click away when you should be writing acceptance tests. 😁
Admittedly, I have it set up so I can work on my personal computer if need be (vpn, dev environment) but it is there in a pinch. I try to enforce the separation for work/life balance and mental health.
I know the problem of distraction rabbit holes well and I hate using website blocking software. RescueTime is one option. You can get more analytics on your website viewing habits or set a time limit for how long to spend on a task/site.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
