I had a software for my PC that was a parental control program, with the ability to set a limit on how long each user was on at a sitting, and I limited myself to 15 minutes at a time, with a 15 minute break before being able to get on again. Is there a way to use Mac's built-in timers to do this, or a software that will?

    How do you ever get anything done like that? 15/15 seems awfully harsh!
