De-Daily Mail

A quick tip on removing the Daily Mail website from your life (Mac users only):

  1. Open terminal (⌘+space then type ‘terminal’)
  2. In terminal type sudo nano /private/etc/hosts
  3. Enter your password when prompted
  4. After where it says fe80::1%lo0 localhost create a new line and type/paste the following: 127.0.0.1 www.dailymail.co.uk
  5. type ^+x (^ is the CTRL key) to exit, y to confirm and return to save

If this doesn’t work straight away you may need to flush your DNS cache – to do this simply type/paste the following into terminal dscacheutil -flushcache

Et voila – no more Daily Mail website on your computer. Please pass on to friends and family to make the world a better place.

You can use Textile

Excellent advice Cole :-D

And if you are a Windows user a similar process will work too…

Just edit c:/windows/System32/drivers/etc/hosts
Add a line
127.0.0.1 www.dailymail.co.uk

For Windows 7 this file needs to be edited by running Notepad as admin:
Goto Start ->All Programs -> Accessories
Right click Notepad, and then click Run as administrator

And if your local DNS needs cleared
Start >> Run >> type cmd
In command prompt, type
C:\> ipconfig /flushdns
