SelfControl [OS X] App: Tweaking Max Block Length and Block Length Interval

To adjust max block time and interval on the sliders, enter the following two commands (press enter after each line):

defaults write org.eyebeam.SelfControl MaxBlockLength -int [maximum block length in minutes] defaults write org.eyebeam.SelfControl BlockLengthInterval -int [block length interval in minutes]


For example, to change it to a month-long maximum block with intervals at each day, you could use:

defaults write org.eyebeam.SelfControl MaxBlockLength -int 43829 defaults write org.eyebeam.SelfControl BlockLengthInterval -int 1440
