It's good on my Ubuntu 12.10. It blocks out all distracting web sites. You can decide for how long you want to block those sites and once started, you cannot unblock them, you just have to wait for it to expire. There's a bug regarding the block list (before starting it) because it's so small you can't select one of the entries and delete it (say, you have a duplicate for a website and you want to eliminate one of the entries). However there is a work-around -- in sudo mode, just copy/paste a piece of code in the UI.pm file under /usr/share/perl5/SelfControl/, instruction are given in their GIThub section (google it, if you're having trouble). It worked for me: I was able to delete one of the entries for youtube.com!
