One of my daily tasks is to answer to the dotnetforum.lk questions. So many times I have to put some web site URLs as references or detail answers. and some of these urls are toooooooooo long and it will brake up in to two lines in the answer, and it won’t go to the correct location when user clicks on it ….

So the answer to this is http://tinyurl.com/.

What it does is it will take our long url as input and will give you a small url, and it will direct to the same web page.

sindhu
saw the news on crickinfo . well Sidhu is one of the cricketers I hate those days, but he is one of my favorite commentates .
Here are some of his quotes that I always enjoyed listening to  (some of them I took from web)

In London they drive on the left, in India we drive on what is left!
The world is all about mind and matter, I don’t mind and U don’t matter…
Sri Lankan score is running like an Indian taximeter.
Statistics are like miniskirts, they reveal more than what they hide.
You cannot make Omelets without breaking the eggs
Deep Dasgupta is as confused as a child is in a topless bar
Indian team without Sachin is like giving Kiss without a Squeeze
 

Hope to listen to his commentary someday future or if discharge from the Supreme Court.
