Did you know that you can abbreviate URL's? Well, not actually abbreviate them, but you can shorten them.

This could be copied and pasted in a browser, but what if it had to be typed? Here's a solution that is (say it with me) FREE! Go to and paste in this long URL and it will be converted to something much more manageable, in this case it would be: Either URL will take you to the same place but isn't a lot easier to use?
