Tiny URLs

I was reminded of this useful tool the other day when I had to create a link to a monstrously long URL. TinyURL makes the problem of long web addresses disappear. Just paste the huge URL into the Make TinyURL box, and hey presto! you have a tiny URL to use. Here’s the URL for Windows Media Player’s home page: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.aspx?displaylang=en&categoryid=4. And here it is as a tiny URL: http://tinyurl.com/a8s6.
What’s extra nice is that it is totally free service!
