hosts file for productivity

Sometimes we need to get something done without the distraction of facebook, twitter or for that matter, linkedin (or some other sites you want to stay away). Here is a tip for how to do it on Mac.
sudo vi /etc/hosts
(note you don’t have to use vi, feel free to use nano or other editor of your choice)
referene entries below
# Host Database
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting. Do not change this entry.
Then do this in command line.
sudo dscacheutil -flushcache
