You had the same problem as me. It generates a URL which is too long to post on one line but if you
split it half the "URL" drops out of the hyperlink. Nice idea but needs some work on the
practicalities

Of course, in reality, I'm going to be using such a site to make a small URL into a *huge*
URL... not ;-)

I know its funny but even funnier to be able to use it otherwise the URL's it creates remain a
private joke. If I could I can imagine lots of occassions where I might use a huge URL :)
