Please Note that this will not work If you use proxy from your browser.This tutorial has been tested on Vista/XP/Windows 2003/Windows 2000.

Ok here it is starting

First step is to prepare your self [ Prepare Site list 😛 ]

– Now go to Start and go to Run

– Type Following address/path    c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS   [please make sure your current/working window installation is on which drive Replace c: with ur windows installtion drive]

– Now open this file in Notepad/Wordpad/Any othe text editor you want

– Note that this is Host file of windows where you can specify the IP address of a Domain

– So now main work come [ I’m taking example to blocking the orkut ]

type following in the last lines of that file

127.0.0.1     orkut.com

127.0.0.1   www.orkut.com

the above will specify orkut.com or www.orkut.com  with an IP address of 127.0.0.1 i.e the domain name of orkut will be resolved as 127.0.0.1

– Now the most Important thing is to save that file 😀

– now open command prompt [ Start -> Run -> CMD ]

– Type following command

ipconfig /flushdns

the above command will flush the DNS cache on ur machine

– Now do following command on command prompt

ping orkut.com

It will show the following

pinging orkut.com [127.0.0.1]  with 32 bytes of data

Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128

Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128

Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128

Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128

if it is shown its IP address else then 127.0.0.1 then ur setting might be wrong [ In that case you can contact me by leaving a comment here ]

Review : HP 2407WPF

Hp Lp2465

24 inch wide format display and great presentation features make the HP LP2465 a leader in great viewing. The system did well in our tests on both texts as well as graphics. It was particularly strong on display of photos and came up with sharp details and good contrast in its default settings. Its scores were somewhere in the middle of the range of performances available in this kind of high performing displays

Connectivity leaves quite a bit to be desired. With HP trying to target these at the enterprise users that might make sense. It has just 2 DVI-I ports, no DVI-VGA adaptor, no component video nor S-Video or HDCP support. That would have the enterprise IT managers worrying a little less but in home use that is likely to leave the user feel cheated. The monitor comes encased in a thin silver colored bezel and you could move around the screen quite well-get it higher/lower, tilt/swivel and so on. It has a on-screen intuitive display that shows accumulated usage hours.

Price is less competitive at $829 nowadays ‘bauce we have seen many cheap alternatives. Competition is with the Dell package mentioned earlier. But for a really cheap deal one may want to compare with Acer AL2423DR but then that lacks some features the HP unit has. Most notably the USB ports though image quality is comparable.
