Yeah, I saw that… it’s listed in the same category in Yahoo that I
submitted my site to. But their URLs are more than 10 characters longer
than what TinyURL will make. :slight_smile: TinyURL will also take URLs that are
already small and make a TinyURL to ‘hide’ the actual link from the
user. TinyURL also does a redirect instead of a gateway page when the
TinyURL is visited.

We like http://TinyUrl.com better! Anything else would be uncivilized. :slight_smile:
