You did not list any examples of which applications to disallow during that 25 minute time period. So, I've used LibreOffice as an example.

No, this does not run LibreOffice. It should hide the application LibreOffice.

comment How to effectively study for a test of many small, random details from a dense textbook?
The subject is biology. It mixes descriptions of historical discoveries, past experiments, and descriptions of what different things do. I only have these resources: (1) the giant textbook and (2) the first test I took (but those questions won't appear on the second test, which was about a different part of the book).

comment How to handle disturbances to “don't-break-the-chain”?
Beeminder seems useful, but I'd rather not throw money into the problem...Does the average system prevent someone from cramming, e.g. saving all 5 study sessions until the last day of the week and fitting them all in at once before the deadline?

"be flexible enough to continue your streak" if I add flexibility to the plan, then it will be quite difficulty to stay on the plan.

Assuming you have the technology to click with your eyes, how do you click with your eyes if the code is 2 pages up? Wouldn't that code be off the screen and not visible to your eyes?

What type of work do you normally do? If most of the work involves typing text, then moving your hands away from the home row and to some other device is going to slow you down. Shortcuts allow you to keep your hands on the keys. If you can type quickly, you'll benefit from being able to input shortcuts quickly, then return to the typing, in much shorter time than you could remove your hand from the keyboard, find a device, then locate the home row again.
