Unstructured URLs

If anyone has ever sent you a monsterously long URL that wraps across several lines of email, you know what a pain in the patookus it is to reassemble. Of course, you inflict this same inconvenience on others when you do the same.

Now there's TinyURL, which is a site that will take huge URLs, such as http://andrewlias.blogspot.com/2004/04/how-to-tell-your-ass-from-hole-in.html, and, intuitively enough, create small and manageable URLs, such as http://tinyurl.com/3b726, that act as redirects to the real URL.
