You need to include both the domain AND the subdomain on different lines. So for example to block Runescape you need:
Some sites, like Runescape, have back doors designed to fool parents. You would also need to block http://jagex.com/ and http://www.jagex.com/.Mac OS X (10.4.8)

nano is a pico clone and, IIRC, replaced pico in Tiger (and maybe Panther). If you do a man pico in Tiger, you get the description for nano.
ls -al /usr/bin/pico

indicates that pico is no longer in Tiger.G4 450 MP Gigabit, Mac OS X (10.4.9)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 24, 2007 9:27 AM (in response to Gnarlodious)Thank you for your help. I tried what you suggested (nano) and covered www.apple.com; apple.com; http://www.apple.com/; http://apple.com/ and it worked great.

I have rewritten it and gone over it letter for letter but I can not seem to find a reason why.Macbook, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
