No problem no how...or even no knowhow.

No next word until you look at it and choose. It's all in your attitude.

Will you have
BASTE --> ABASE or BASTE --> BEST ? :-) smile

Actually, you shouldn't need to avoid posting site references even if you do get long names sometimes.

As with so much on the computer, whatever you need, somebody's probably already done it for you.

I found this site by looking up "short url" (click here) so you should only need one Post-it note, with this address on it.

(Assuming nothing -- forgive me if it's unnecessary -- " http://www.shorturl.com ", the name of the site, is a "URL", which stands for "Universal Resource Locator". This one happens to be relatively short.)

Then you just do what it says there, a one-step operation involving some cutting-and-pasting.

Give it a try, before you decide you must limit yourself.

BEAST


funny, but this is the second time today, Schrodinger has come into conversation. How weird is that!
We were discussing cats names and I happen to ask if anyone knew the name of Schrodinger Cat.... (me knowing the answer all along wink )

It's only fitting that the BEAST should be found inside the

I'm sorry for using this site for all my woes, but what
is this site for? Do I type something into it, before
posting a site, or something like that???

SALVE

if you have a link address that;s too long, and you'd like to replace it with one that's shorter and fits better, this will keep your original destination but point to it with a shorter name.. So instead of writing "Go HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERERERERERERERERERERERERERERREREREREREREEEEEEEEEEEEEERERERERERERERERERERERRERERERERE" you get "Go Here", which works the same but looks better.


You put in a HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERE and it gives you a HERE that goes to the same site.
