When you go to my.case.edu, check out the URL:

Wow! My my, what a long URL you have, portal.

On a completely unrelated note, nobody says hypertext. You know, the "ht" in "http"? I wonder why that word never really took off and became engrained in common vernacular. And, if we already have hypertext, how far off is hyperdrive?

I wish Ted would have called it cybertext. I bet that would have taken off.
