/etc/hosts instead of NetInfo!
Authored by: EatingPie on Jan 30, '04 04:31:30PM

Might be a good idea to use /etc/hosts rather than NetInfo for adding your own hosts. I've heard... and so this is hearsay!... that NetInfo is going away. Don't know how true it is, but...

Note that in Jaguar you had to disable NetInfo hosts and turn on /etc/hosts. Now in Panther you can use both without worries.

Oh, and the sourceforge link above is an empty project, with no files. However, I did a "fink list" and see "bash-completion 20030209-1."
