What am I missing in the git remote add command?

Stuck on a quiz question. To add a remote named "tommy" is this not the code: git remote add tommy http://copyandpastedaddressfromquiz.com ?

I've looked in my own code from the videos and the above looks right, but I'm getting a returned answer of having the wrong address. I've tried typing out the address, and copying and pasting it, but I must be missing something.

Post your attempt with the url from the quiz.

You didn't by any chance use the same URL for Task 3 that you did for Task 1, did you? They are two different URLs.

The correct solution for Task 3 is:

git remote add tommy http://tommysgitstuff.com/git_basics/cool_stuff.git

Well, maybe it was fatigue and the answer was right in front of me, but I re-entered everything the next morning and that command worked. If I had to guess, I suspect i had an errant space somewhere and just missed it.
