    85.17.40.69 tracker.oink.me.uk
    85.17.40.70 irc.oink.me.uk
    85.17.40.71 oink.me.uk
    there's your answer/solution

    #1 Get rid of Vista
    #2 Turn off UAC
    #3 Give yourself administrative access

    Temporary fix for Mac OS X, it requires some work in the Terminal. You need the admin password for your system for this. Make sure to enter all commands in bold correctly with the proper spaces and capitalization.

    1. Open "Terminal" from your Applications / Utilities directory.

    2. Type cd /private/etc and hit enter.

    3. Time to edit the hosts file, we will use VIM for it, which is a text editor for the console. You also need root privileges to edit the file because it is read only for normal users.
    Type sudo vim hosts and hit enter. You will be asked for your admin password, enter it and hit enter, then VIM pops up.

    4. You will see the content of the hosts file, first few lines are comments with # in the front, then 3 entries, do NOT touch these. Navigate to the last line with your cursor keys and then to the right till the cursor is behind the localhost entry

    5. Now you need VIM to go into edit mode, do this by hitting i

    6. VIM is in insert mode now, hit enter for a new line and type
    85.17.40.69 tracker.oink.me.uk

    If you want you can add the following lines too, in case you encounter trouble with IRC or the website. Hit enter after each line for a new one
    85.17.40.71 oink.me.uk
    85.17.40.70 irc.oink.me.uk

    7. Time to leave edit mode now, do so by hitting the escape key.

    8. Back in viewing mode, now you need to save the file. You can do this by typing :w and hitting enter, VIM will tell you something like "hosts (number of lines) written".

    9. Now you need to exit VIM. Type :q and hit enter, you will be back at the terminal.

    10. Almost done, now you need to tell the OS to use the content of the new hosts file.
    Type sudo niload -v -m hosts . < /etc/hosts and hit enter.
    You will be asked for the admin password again, after that the hosts file will be parsed.

    11. You're done, exit the terminal by typing exit and hit enter. Close the window.

    Edit: To remove them again - follow the same steps, in step 6 delete the 3 added lines, then save the file, quit the editor. You can then either run step 10 or wait until your next reboot.
