Sounds like a good rule of thumb to me. I like (aka Metamark), personally, for "tiny URL" services. One thing I like about them is that they let you choose the string of characters, so you can pick something meaningful if you want (and if the string is still free). (If you don't pick anything, it'll come up with a random string of its own just like tinyurl.) Cheers, -- Philip Newton <philip.newton@...>
