Tool of the Day: TinyURL.com

TinyURL.com is useful when you want to leave a link in someone's comments or your own. You know how when someone posts a lengthy URL in your comments it gets cut off and becomes unusable? No more.

TinyURL converts long URLs into ...tiny ones. Copy and paste the new URL wherever you need to. To get your TinyURL, you can either paste a long URL into the window on the TinyURL homepage or just bookmark TinyURL and go to it directly from the page whose URL you want to shorten.

The URL for this post, for example, is

With TinyURL it's
