contact from the URL. Another problem is, that if you click to second
"contact URL" then the browser will RELOAD the whole software,

I use hash - the key is the UID and the value is the destination
it would be possible to work with a complete url too. (for the time
being, there could be a generic "web-access" user.) if the base hook
is implemented, i might be able to use it as a starting point and
experiment with optimizations that would work without sequential search.
interfacing with the web browser part, but when it comes to algorithms,
it's just another programming language.)
To use raw power is to make yourself infinitely vulnerable to greater powers.
