How do I do that, tsuwm?

I have been posting here for over 3 years, as you know, and I have never had a link that was too long before. I'm not sure why this is a problem for anyone, but if it is I'll be happy to straighten it out lickety-splickety. :)

> a problem

It just means that everyone has to scroll to and fro across the window for any post in the whole thread, Plutarch, so it helps if anyone wanting to use a long URL can break it into two lines (or use one of the redirection sites as advocated by our upside down friends). It's just a small bit of 'housekeeping' that makes life easier and may be a useful tip for any newcomers.
