I have experimented with productivity software and browser control apps, etc.
This is the most simple way to block sites you don’t want people to access on your machine including yourself. IE, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

If you are composing a technical document containing screenshots you will find the file size balloon very quickly. This makes it difficult to transmit via email and just wastes space on your hard drive.

Just a quick tutorial. The driver for my laptop suddenly crashed whether due to some sort of hack attack or just general Microsoftery. I thought that tethering my iPhone using WiFi might kick it back on since my laptop recognized wireless networks but just didn’t display them to be connected. I discovered something interesting and I thought I would share it.
All you really have to do is have a newer iOS version (my example uses 4.3.2), an iPhone cable (technically you can wirelessly connect to your phone as well but as mentioned my phone had no wireless at the time) and just switch on the setting.

Then you could just reset the user’s password and login as them or do whatever you had to do through the administration account unnoticed.
