If I had the money, I'd go back, but it wouldn't be the same experience now.

And thus is born the sport "Galactocaching".
We all know it anyways. Is it really that much work to type it out by hand? You could always just bookmark it and never have to worry about it again.
I'm not sure why you'd want the CERN-branded SL, as it's configured specifically for their network (their AFS, Kerberos, printers, etc). I used it because I wasn't aware of the more generic version:
