Writing this took 4 minutes and 28 seconds.

I love the Web, but it sure does soak up time. That's why I borrowed an idea from Lifehacker, and started keeping a stopwatch by my computer.
  • When I'm online, I hit the "start" button on the stopwatch.
  • When I go offline, it I hit the "stop" button.
  • When I go online again, I start the watch again.
  • And at the end of the day, I note how much time I've spent on the Web, and hit "clear."
And no, I'm not consciously trying to limit my time on the computer . . . but doing nothing more than just noting the time I spend on the Web has been an eye-opener -- and I think it's made a difference.
