Not replacing; adding:

Jaspers-MacBook-Pro:etc jasper$ cat hosts
# Host Database
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.
##    localhost    broadcasthost
::1             localhost 
fe80::1%lo0    localhost

# My local aliases    Jaspers-MacBook-Pro.local
