    Sorry, i mighht sound really illeterate here.:eek:

    But I need to disable a website, so if I type the url I wont be able to open it.

    I am addicted to it and I want to get rid of the addiction because it is taking away a lot of my time.

    You could always redirect the name to nowhere (your machine) lookup by adding

    studentdoctor.net 127.0.0.1
    www.studentdoctor.net 127.0.0.1

    to your hosts file.

    LOL. Looks like a forum for students planning to be doctors. Who would have guessed.

    Open terminal. Type "sudo pico /etc/hosts" without the quotes. Press enter.

    Put in your password, press enter. This will show up:

    Navigate with your arrow keys, type in the appropriate stuff:

    Then press Control+O, then enter again. It will say "wrote x lines" and you're set.

    Note that the actual forums seem to be at forums.studentdoctor.net, so you'll need to add a line for that one too. ;)

    One last note on this topic, is that that doesn't stop someone from visiting the site by IP number, i.e. http://209.11.254.45, so it won't stop someone who is dtermined, but it will make it harder.
