I might try that on my BSD box but on this little windows laptop, I avoid that country domain like the plague.

Yes, why? That is where CERN is located.
Interestingly, CERN invented the world wide web in 1989.

Oh! Just looked. That's what the posted link is about.

I found it interesting that then, they were at cern.ch Now, they have their own TLD: .cern

I guess it pays to be first

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: CentOS at the time of this writing, but some others over the years too...

Thanks for your post keefaz.

It doesn't seem all that long ago that the "World Wide Web" come about, but yet so much has changed since the 90's. And the world, particularly the Internet is so very different now. It's amazing how much has changed since then, it really is...

This reminded me: watch the documentary "Lo and Behold" by Werner Herzog on Netflix. It's about the Internet - well done and very interesting.

Yes, I thought it was interesting to see the first web browser in action, I was surprised by the words too, like to open a new URL, in those days you did:

"Open from full document reference"
