This was my problem with this exercise too. I kept spelling it CodeAcademy and not Codecademy. LOL!

Another thing to be aware of: You need the www in the URL or it will fail.

I found this post to be very helpful in seeing my errors. I realized I didn't need var in front of xhr.open and false didn't need parentheses these simple errors can be crucial when coding.

Just goes to show that most people don't know or type the domain in properly, which can only mean that codeacademy is a poor site name haha.

You typed in the wrong name it's codecademy not codeacademy. And I don't agree with you.

Don't get sour now Ivan, it was only a joke.

You're probably new here, but the original name was codeacademy. Try visiting codeacademy and the URL will redirect.

The name is hard to remember or type out, too many vowels in it. you're definitely new to the internet in general.
