 In your browser type in

 no prefix, no suffix.
 And hit "ENTER"

Reg?

Ahaaaa, but this is an internal locator function of the browser website,
try to type anything simple as "shoes" or "pencil" and press [enter] and
after one second press [escape], it will interrupt the search and you
will see url being accessed is http://My.Netscape.Com or Microsoft (not
sure if MSExploder do this too).  The search engines at those places try
to locate and connect your request to some url that makes sense.

Definitely agreed here -  Ewww!  Where do I send the bills for the
Psychotherapy and hospital stays I'll now require, to, Reginald?

 And it offers you Quicktime!  Oh boy, I installed that once and it's
fouled up Netscape nicely.  How do you get it *out* again?  (have
already tried re-install.)

Hey, don't send them to me. All my assets are tied up in debts already :-)
Computer flavors are like religion. I've noticed that the people who want
to share their religious views with me almost never want me to share mine
with them...

Like Wagner said, it's not really magic. There's a method behind it. Maybe
"pencil" doesn't work, but I think there are others besides 13thfloor.

That's funny!  Around here, the 13th Floor is "The Loonie Bin" - and up
pops apple.com!!!

Somebody has a sense of humor!

13th floor was a (flop) movie a while back.

Apple was investing in various movies & getting product placements
as part of the deal. 13th floor was one of these.

Why the domain is pointed at Apple, I don't know.
