    “Tim Berners-Lee regrets the format of the URL. Instead of being divided into the route to the server, separated by dots, and the file path, separated by slashes; he would have liked it to be one coherent hierarchical path.[4] For example, http://www.serverroute.com/path/to/file.html would look like http://com/serverroute/path/to/file.html.”

    “SGML, developed in the ’1960s’ by Charles Goldfarb, Edward Mosher and Raymond Lorie…” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SGML

    Happy 40+ years of surfing?

    “Leonard Kleinrock conducted early research in queueing theory which would be important in packet switching, and published a book in the related field of digital message switching (without the packets) in 1961; he also later played a leading role in building and management of the world’s first packet switched network, the ARPANET.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packet_switching

    Yep, this is one of the few cases where my pronunciation in French is actually better than my spelling. But as is typical with me, the Barney Fife of French communication, it never comes out quite right but you get what I mean.
