Some of you who have read Technical books might have noticed that the author provided download links to content that starts with http://tinyurl.com/ TinyURL.com is a free service that allows you to create nice short URLs to your own or other sites or download content on the web.

Let me give an example with this blog post. The full URL to this blog post is: https://www.verboon.info/index.php/2009/02/tinyurl/ kind of a long URL right ? For demonstration purposes I have added the above URL on the TinyURL.COM web site which gave me the following nice short URL: http://tinyurl.com/cjygl7

The first url has a lenght of 57 characters, the tinyurl url only uses 25.
