Bright Idea: Tiny URL's

Sometimes the smallest idea makes the biggest sense. Clipmarks and I-Lighters are tools we can use. Here is another that eases the pain of technology, at least a little. Tiny URL ( takes those incredibly long URL's and cuts them down to size. Their site says:

Are you sick of posting URLs in emails only to have it break when sent causing the recipient to have to cut and paste it back together? Then you've come to the right place. By entering in a URL in the text field below, we will create a tiny URL that will not break in email postings and never expires.

You put in the long URL, and it makes a short one for you. How sweet is that!

Note: You can also add a link to your browser toolbar to make it even easier to use. Directions are on the site.
