I'm using Kubuntu 9.04 and need a method of blocking certain websites, openDNS is not an option due to I'm being at University (which is also the main reason I want to restrict my own access!).
What methods are available to me regarding this?
Many thanks for your help,
An easy way: for each site you want to block, put the site's name in /etc/hosts with a bogus address like 0.0.0.0. The system will look in /etc/hosts first and return an unusable address.
There are many ways to accomplish this. The above has the advantage of being simple.
