Favorite Things Friday:

Very long hyperlinks that often get "broken" in e-mail are just one of modern life's little annoyances. Nothing we can do about it, right?


In today's edition of Favorite Things Friday, I bring you one of my new favorite websites: This might just be one of the most useful little, er, tiny, sites you ever visit.

You'll never send a broken link again!
