<tip type="NT, aliases">

Sick of remembering your friend's IP, and/or having to type it in?

Head into WinNT/system32/drivers/etc/

Find a file called "Hosts"

Throw in a line using the format:

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx	friendsname

(where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP you want)

Then, heading to http://friendsname/ in your browser will alias to their IP.

Use a similar technique to block doubleclick (by aliasing it to and
every other ad server you can think of. If you want a list of the ad servers I
block, contact me offlist.
