A cool web tool for you
Have I mentioned Tiny URL.com?
I just had to send a colleague of mine a link and the web address (aka URL) was incredibly long … the type of URL that breaks apart in email and it takes a bit of maneuvering to get it back into one piece.
Well, a few years ago, colleagues on another listserv turned me on to TinyURl.com — a handy tool for making long URLs into short ones. (Not quite the same as turning straw into gold, but anything that makes something very long shorter is a good deal in my book).
Did I mention that it’s free?
Not only does this little url shrinker shrink urls, but it also stabilizes the location of that link so it never expires.
Simple. Elegant. Ahh…
Now if everything on the web could be that easy.
