How to block BSN

Post by magnetite on Fri Mar 01, 2013 7:58 am

For those who have exiled themselves from the BSN and found refuge here, there's a way where you could block that site fairly easily so you can stay as far away from the crazy stuff as possible:

1. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
2. Open the file named "hosts". It'll ask you which program to open it with, pick Notepad.
3. In the file type or copy this line (be sure to leave a space or even a tab-length between the IP address and the domain name):

127.0.0.1 social.bioware.com
127.0.0.1 localhost

4. Save the file. Be sure to save it as "hosts" with quotes otherwise, it'll save it as a plan text file, and won't work.
5. Restart your computer and try to connect to the site. Won't be able to, because the site is completely blocked. You'll get a message that says unable to connect.

I agree with Arian, I mean doing an effort so I can do nothing?

BSN is fun sometimes. I mean, I KNOW I want to see it on Tuesday-Wednesday ;)

I love it when Birdie accuses me of being a troll.
