“One of several buggy areas of Mac OS X is the ‘lookupd’ program, which is responsible for the critical job of translating hostnames (e.g. http://www.apple.com) to IP addresses (e.g. 184.108.40.206) needed to actually make a network connection. We discussed these problems last year and again this past spring, but they continue through today’s Tiger 10.4.2,” MacInTouch reports.
