Default Coca-Cola's recipe cracked?

I'm not a soda maker, but I stumbled on this like today.

http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/02/15/...la-discovered/

Here is a summary of why they believe it is the recipe for Coca-Cola:

"Producers of the radio program This American Life came across an article on the history of Coca-Cola in an old copy of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Coca-Cola's hometown newspaper. Published on page 2B on February 18, 1979, the article received little attention at the time. But, producers say, that's because no one realized the photo used to illustrate the story is a hand-written copy of John Pemberton's original recipe, jotted down by a friend in a leather-bound recipe book of ointments and medicines, and passed down by friends and family for generations."

It would be interesting if somebody would try this here and post their results.

I'm not sure why it is not working. I posted links before and they worked fine. I'll try again.

Nope, still not working. Just copy and paste the address into your browser, that is working for me.

Figured it out, it's the stupid FYURL service this forum uses to get more ad revenue from outside links.

In a way, I really hope that it turns out to me an off-variety, or a prototype. Of course, Coke is so big now, that this really won't hurt them.
