Cold Turkey supports categories under Import –> Website Categories, but the categories are not comprehensive.

Block a website in Cold Turkey. Disable the Cold Turkey extension in Safari. Cold Turkey will ask to re-enable the extension. It will start a 60-second timer. You can customize the duration of the timer. Navigate to the blocked website. Put Safari in the background but still visible. The timer will pause. The website will not block.

I tried running Cold Turkey as an administrator. Unfortunately, Frozen Turkey only logged out of the administrator account –– not any of the other accounts.

I bypassed Cold Turkey with the following command in Terminal:

while ; do killall Cold\ Turkey\ Blocker; done

Cold Turkey supports locking a block [0], but I wish that it supported a delay feature like Plucky [1].

Silly me - didn't use the drop down to put the minutes I wanted blocked. As long as it unblocks will donate $10 to the site
