I know how it works dude... I've had to tweak my hosts file for work stuff while working on non-production webshares.

Yeah, I just saw your post on FB about Chrome routing things to Google search automatically if it doesn't think it is a URL.  :blush:

Plus, you know, I don't expect HR to know these things. :P

vM, I think most people are Chrome users and even if they hack their host files, if they just type 'languish.org' into their address bar, it won't work because Chrome always wants to be searching for an address.  You'd have to put 'http://' in there, too, or else it won't work post-host file update.

Editing host file and using languish.org without http:// worked for me in Chrome. :unsure:

I did the same thing, which is why I couldn't figure out what you were talking about.  In fact, until Syt posted I still misunderstood, because I thought you were talking about the address bar.

Protocols are never needed in hosts files, because it is just a mapping of names to IP addresses.  A name lookup does not care about the protocol string.

Apparently Chromebooks don't have editable hosts files. Can't say I'm surprised.

I was talking about the address bar, not the hosts file.

Transfer is complete and I switched the DNS servers this morning.  DNS should heal itself by tomorrow morning.

the place still smells like stale pee. But at least I'm out of the mod fascist paradox hellhole.

It was a nice respite, as the shutdown coincided with a rather nasty bout of Fuck All You Fucking Assholes I Hope You All Fucking Get Windshielded In A Pedestrian Crossing that I was going through last week.

That would never happen. I avoid walking anywhere.
