Noticed that the domain name ends in a '.' - is this intentionally or a typo? Works fine with or without.

Does DNS simply ignore a trailing '.'?

Just checking here with "google.com." and indeed it does! Google will rewrite the URL to omit the trailing '.' but other sites apparently do not. "irishtimes.com." for example.

(-: Thank you!

Also tangentially, do you do your smiley backwards (like I do) so that Outlook doesn't rewrite them on you?

Yea you can modify it locally. But in this context I meant redistributing your modified version a la free software. It's not much fun to play with something and then not show anyone.
