Main

A rather useful little service.

You know how tinyurl.com is great for making horribly long links into something you can put in a Usenet message, but the resulting link is entirely inscrutable and doesn't have any info about where it goes?

Someone has come up with a solution. It's just like tinyurl except the ID strings are made from the site name and a title that either you type in or is autograbbed from the page being linked to.

This looks like a very handy thing.

(Meanwhile, in completely the opposite direction, there's hugeurl.com.)
