[AG-TECH] connecting venues

Ah, so I guess how ANL was able to link to our Venue Server from the
educational venues without us needing to do anything was that ANL's
certificate was already on our Venue Server and it just let's them do
that? Good to have the power I guess.
Seems rather annoying that we have to mess with certificates to provide
what is essentially just a URL (that is able to be typed into a Venue
Client) to the Venue Server. It should be as simple as adding a link to
a webpage, IMHO.
Speaking of webpages, how come we have to have the impossible-to-type
URLs with what looks like an MD5 hash at the end of them? Why not just
'simple' names, like webpages have? What do you prefer to type?
http://mysite.com/page1.html ? It would seem to have been obvious to do
that for venues.
I know it's not your doing, Michael, I'm just replying to your email
and feeling like a rant to the list about it (again).
