I put `google` as the hard coded default, but I expect operators to change the hard coded value to whatever they want, though it could be a parameter. Also, this should work fine with 32bit systems. `regset64` shouldn't actually matter in this case.

Perhaps you could add a parameter query so the admin is asked what they want the url to be. I don't think this works on 32bit boxes... could that be added too?
