So I tried using mac_hosts.zip (928K) by copying and pasting the hosts via Terminal (and saving it), but it doesn't work. I am very confused about the renaming thing. I tried to go the other installation way, but I can't figure out how to extract it into private/etc. I am fairly new to mac and I feel I'm looping around trying to figure it all out. I flushed the cache via Terminal as well and it isn't working. My test site is thepiratebay.org since I know the hosts file has it.

Sorry for the delay.

The file needs to be called "hosts" (no extension) and should be extracted to the /etc/hosts directory.

Hello, I figured out why it wouldn't work. The Linux one worked. The list for Mac is incompatible with Snow Leopard. That was the real problem. Thank you.

Thanks for letting me know.

I've not got a MAC myself, so wasn't aware anything had changed (it was tested by a friend on a MAC, can't remember what it was running though). I'll try and find the cause and get it resolved for the next update.

My friend who has a Mac helped me out. We noticed that Snow Leopard's hosts work with.

127.0.0.1 -air-talkie-walkie.ddlcorner.com
127.0.0.1 0-29.com
127.0.0.1 0-pdf.com

Those numbers at the beginning as opposed to at the end.

-air-talkie-walkie.ddlcorner.com CNAME 127.0.0.1
0-29.com CNAME 127.0.0.1
0-pdf.com CNAME 127.0.0.1

Perhaps the Mac hosts works with Macs before Snow Leopard? Maybe labeling that Snow Leopard Mac users (My version is 10.6.7) with the Linux hosts would help out future Snow Leopard users? I'm not sure about Lion, but I wouldn't be surprised with how Macs are changing if it works that way with Lion as well. I hope that information helps you and future users. :)
