What if the task you need to do involves using a website?

What if you just say "enough work, i need some distraction, let's disable Nope"?

Useless software IMHO. Same thing can be accomplished by pulling out your network cable, or disabling WiFi.

OH..."a software that helps you block sites for a certain amount of time "... I was hoping for a cone of silence.

In my views, Nope Pro is using the GOTD services as per it’s intended use. To test the viability & its usefulness out in the public community.

I can see a use. If you work at home at all, and are working with an immediate deadline, or fixing an online problem, getting emails and various other popups or sounds could be a big distraction.

Rick_S,

I use an alternative program called Self Restraint. Works every time.

Niv,

While I certainly appreciate your humor, with some, that program doesn't work well at all. Those with AD/HD have difficulties in areas such as self-regulation and self-monitoring. I can see this program working well for them. I think this program would be excellent if targeted to the right audience.

Rick_S, WIndows 10 has Focus Assist mode to quieten down the incessant notifications it will give you if you let it... getting emails when working from home is normally important and not to be blocked.... blocking the reception of emails would prevent them being read and any read receipts being sent back to head office and make them wonder why you are not at your computer and working... and sounds... never heard of a volume control? Or the mixer muting programs you don't want to hear and allowing the ones you do want to hear to play sounds. And blocking certain sites on a schedule you can do with windows parental controls and have it generate an anctivity log to prove you were working too.

Niv,
Bravo! I still might use the program for the 'bad' days

if you need this kind of software to keep from being distracted more likely you need PROFESSIONAL help

txtim, Yeah, it's like needing a law to tell you right from wrong. Might be of some use to admins. though.

Why isn't Nope Pro mentioned anywhere at the publisher's website: https://iristech.co ??? We just have the two sentences in this page's description. To vague for me to litter my registry to see what all it does. Can we use a password to keep the sites blocked like a parental control? Does it work for all browsers? Why would we need to disable sites to prevent distraction? Wouldn't it be easier to simply not browse the internet until our task is complete?

Nomad, like this vendors previous giveaway this too does not exist as a commercial product but is a work in progress project still very early in development and not well thought through. e.g. IF one has an addiction to a one or more particular websites it is extreemly likely you will have their apps on your mobile devices and will not even be accessing the site on your PC at work or at home. This apears to be a lite version of Windows parental controls rebranded to make it less belittling to use for an adult with addiction problems. Like gambling addictions or social network service addictions. Or even giveawayoftheday.com addictions though they don't have an APP so maybe it might help with that LOL

Nomad, the giveaway temporarily alters the hosts file. So it does work for all browsers. And for all other apps wanting to reach a blocked url.

Nomad,

Most likely the developer is just "testing the waters" to see if this product category is worth the effort of additional promotion.

There are plenty of "parental control" applications, browser extensions/add-ons, and Microsoft Windows own family control settings that might suffice.

The developer needs to further elaborate on what makes this different and more desirable (at least on this page). Perhaps Nope Pro is simpler and/or more focused on just one task it does really well?

kryp teller, Seriously it just hacks around with the hosts file? I hope it flushes the filesystems cache and DNS cache after each edit of the hosts file to ensure that nothing cached gets read after it's no longer valid... So this will not be able to block access to any sites that are accessed via IP numbers directly and bypass any name lookup service. I hope it leaves a hosts file as it finds it as many of us use it to block all sorts of undesirable malicious domains and 3rd party trackers domains... many thousands of entries that need to be kept safe and excluded from this programs list.
