Finding an aticle using it's DOI

The topic of DOI's probably warrants more of a discussion but it's 4:15 p.m. on a Friday and it's not going to happen now. But, just in case I wasn't the last person on the planet to figure this out I thought I'd document it here for posterity:

In your browser type http://dx.doi.org/.

It's that easy!
