Gordon and -Tx explanations about the use of Gordon's hosts file.


June 1999, part of the remove banners section of the anti-advertisement lab.
Place this file in your WINDOWS directory or wherever you have winsock installed.

To use the thing, just do a search for winsock on your machine, then stick it in the same directory (usually WINDOWS for Win9x) and it will start working the next time you use the internet. it doesn't block popups, but hey...

I should look into proximitron and the other programs mentioned, but I usually won't install new software in Windows 95, since 2 months ago my windows 95 was taking 5 minutes to start and I switched to 3.1 for a while (and liked it, but couldn't find enough progs), and don't want to go through a reinstall again any time soon.

I hope you're not a member of any of the hardcore beastiality sites, because there are plenty of those blocked out in the file. :-)

Gordon


The HOSTS file contains names for machines on the TCP/IP network. your computer will trust his own information before external information (via a DNS request).

What gordon's file does is associating well known annoying servers to the adress 127.0.0.1, which is the loopback adapter, ie your own compter. and since odds are you don't run a web server on your machine, when netscape tries to connect there, it fails and you don't get to see yet another ad or porn site picture... you'll get a 'broken picture' icon instead..

HOSTS FILE


Cut it and name it HOSTS, then place it in your WINDOWS directory or wherever you have winsock installed

#
# This is Gordon's HOSTS file of INCREDIBLE POWER (tm)
# current as of June 1999, blocks out shitloads of adservers.
#
# I HIGHLY recommend that you edit this to suit your needs.
#
# Notes: if anyone finds anything on here that is actually a valid, *USEFUL*
# site that just happens to serve ads, by all means mail me at:
# onewingedangel1@yahoo.com with the full URL of the usefullness and I'll
# take it off the list.
#
# www.microsoft.com is blocked out.
#
# Also, many porn sites are included that may have actual content, but
# which spam their banners all over the net so much that I though it would
# be a good idea to include them.  If you are subscribed to any of them,
# I recommend you do not use this list.  You're probably too busy waxing
# your johnson to care about something like this anyway...
