    I just found this out today! Internet domains are meant to have a (.) after them but software was changed so you don't have to enter it. Of course the . still works.

    I.E. www.k3v.com.

    Am I alone in my illiteracy? come on be honest?
     
  2. never heard of it b4. why would any one want an extra dot there in the first place? and where did u find out that there was a dot b4?

    Hey Doc - I meant I never heard of a dot (period) at the end of a URL before.;)

    Of course I have heard of and know about "full stops" - I even do that sometimes at "STOP" signs!;) ;)
