/etc/hosts is working... when I don't want it to {Snow Leopard}
Authored by: bruddalarry on Oct 01, '09 10:35:42AM

So, before I discovered Floppymoose.com I edited the /etc/hosts file to block ads (since 64 bit Safari doesn't support the adblocker I was using in Leopard... yet). I went back to the hosts file and deleted all of the sites I'd added, but it still appears to be blocking some websites... I tried to refresh using the dscache command in terminal (described above), and rebooted the computer, all to no avail. Unfortunately, I didn't think to backup the hosts file either. Any ideas?
