 ^^^^^^^ This should better be printed as 0100007f and it means 
"" (read from right to left).

You have a serious problem with your loopback interface (and it sucks 
bad :-)

Try 'ping localhost' and 'ping'.

Check /etc/hosts for " localhost". No more entries for 
"localhost", no more entries for "".

Try 'echo | nslookup' and 'echo localhost | nslookup'.

Try something like 'ifconfig lo0' or whatever your loopback interface 
is named.

Report about the outcome and report some details about your operating 
system. Help is on its way. :-)
