A coworker today introduced me to TinyURL.com. Tired of trying to email or link big, long, ugly URLs? Go to the TinyURL Web site, enter the URL, and receive a new, permanent, and much shorter URL in return. All through the magic of redirection. For example, the URL to my main Random Notes page (http://www.mischel.com/diary/index.htm) is also http://tinyurl.com/m1oa.
This assumes, of course, that the TinyURL service remains available and that the servers are online. Cool stuff, regardless.
