Do You TinyURL?

By

(URL = Uniform Resource Locator, e.g. this is a url: http://www.tinyurl.com/ and so is this: http://oregonlegalresearch.blogspot.com/)

TinyURL has been around for donkey’s years, but it’s never too late be the latest person to learn about TinyURL. And, best of all, the service has about a 3-second learning curve. Paste in your long URL, wait a second, and voila, out comes your TinyURL:

From their web page:

“Turn this URL:
http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?ovi=1&mqma p.x=300&mqmap.y=75&mapdata=%252bKZmeiIh6N%252bIgpXRP3bylMaN0O4z8OOUkZWYe7NRH6ldDN96YFTIUmSH3Q6OzE5XVqcuc5zb%252fY5wy1MZwTnT2pu%252bNMjOjsHjvNlygTRMzqazPStrN%252f1YzA0oWEWLwkHdhVHeG9sG6cMrfXNJKHY6fML4o6Nb0SeQm75ET9jAjKelrmqBCNta%252bsKC9n8jslz%252fo188N4g3BvAJYuzx8J8r%252f1fPFWkPYg%252bT9Su5KoQ9YpNSj%252bmo0h0aEK%252bofj3f6vCP

into this tinyURL: http://tinyurl.com/6

Which one would you rather cut and paste into your browser? That’s the power of TinyURL!”
