Idiens Thanks - it sounds like an upside....

sailingdog Idiens-

If you try going to Youchoose.net or seeing content from there it will fail. That's the only downside...

Idiens Excellent SD. That was just about my level.

So having followed the instructions faithfully, should I notice a difference and is there a down side?

Thank you

P.S. I tried to give you another rep+ point but I am not allowed.

sailingdog PO-TAY-TO, PO-TAH-TOH... Same thing....just different pronounciation... dummy, knothead... whatever.

You've got to remember that the guide was written by a dog for a seagull... so how high-level can it be.

Type "notepad hosts" and hit "RETURN"

In the Notepad window that then opens, go to the bottom of the file and type "127.0.0.1 youchoose.net"

Save the file and quit Notepad. In the CMD window, type "EXIT" and hit "RETURN"

You will probably have to reboot for the modified hosts file to take effect.

If you type the quotation marks and run into a problem because of it, I will fly out and beat you about the head and shoulders... TYPE ONLY WHAT IS IN THE QUOTES. BTW, you did say dummie's guide to doing this.

I prefer to say " A Knotheads Guide" Thanks SD

Idiens Do you have a dummies guide to doing that on XP?

SEMIJim I null-routed youchoose.net as soon as it appeared. That thing made this site annoyingly slow.

As far as the server issues: It's happened a couple times the last couple days. Acts like backend database problems.

CharlieCobra Yep, using a local host file is a web testers hack that works well. You could also enter the actual IP address of that server into the file and it'd load instantly.
