Ok this is getting downright rediculous. There is a reason we HAVE search engines, to find the links between content names and destination names. If I want to order an apple I don't goto www.apple.com. These levels of naming exist for a reason. If you want to find content about apples you goto Google and search for apples, if you want to goto Apple Computer you type www.apple.com, and if you want to goto a specific server you type 22.214.171.124. If you cannot figure out what to type or where to type it, this is not my problem. If this thread stops right now I will pay everyone who participated in it up to this point $1000 US each.
