Jaguar user here, system requirements say 19.3, so...

What does it actually do? Just put a dummy entry in /etc/hosts for the domain name?

Yes, this program just puts entries in the /etc/hosts file. This was requested...I implemented...

Doesn't seem to work. I installed it under Mac OS X 10.4.5. The first time I ran it, when I tried to save the list of blocked sites, it asked me for my administrator password multiple times and never was able to authenticate, even though I'm positive that I was typing the correct password. I quit the program, re-launched it, and it would not relaunch because my etc/hosts file had been deleted. Something is very wrong here.
