It would have been faster if they'd used FedEx. }:-)

BTW, I actually heard CBS radio news try to spell out the URL. They forgot
to say the second slash after the "http:". The SF Examiner had the same
error online on their WWW server but they corrected it when I pointed it out
to them. BTW, I first heard about it from CNN.

It really looks like the media went hog wild over this one. I've never heard
or seen a URL on mass media before!
