So Ya Wanna Post A Big URL
Posted 04 July 2008 - 05:46 PM
HTTP is Hypertext transfer protocol

I asked for its translation in PLAIN LANGUAGE, please.
"Weblink"? "Universal Resource Locator"? "Thread"? "Post"? "Paste"? "Cut"? "Drag"?
Why can't you people use plain talk?
I know that an Alpha Particle is a Helium Nucleus, and a Beta Particle is an Electron, and that Plutonium is created when a Uranium 238 Nucleus is bombarded with and captures an extra Neutron, producing PU 239, and that Lithium Deuteride produces Tritium for H-Bomb fuel when heated to fusion temperatures, but your URL "code talk" leaves me gasping!

Oh, you mean a "LINK".....I recently learned what that was.
Don...you ain't gonna believe this, but I've owned computers for 12 years, and I've had an on-line account for 10 years, but I swear that I STILL DON'T KNOW the difference between a "Browser", a "Server", a "Search Motor" and an "Internet Provider".
My knowledge is narrow in scope, but HIGHLY FOCUSED in my personal areas of interest.
Thank you, and may you enjoy Uncle Sam's 232nd Birthday!

Seems like no more effort to put a long URL into UBBcode, than to go to TinyURL and jump through their hoop...

Many paths lead to Rome, whichever you choose is fine- please just refrain from post a huge URL which screws up reading the page for the rest of us.
We're just offering different methods, not running a contest to see which is best.
BTW, I too dislike Tiny, but if that's what works for you, cool.

It creates urls that GIVE you an idea where you going ie:
http://lnk.nu/cloudynights.com/10sk (a link I created that take you to this discussion)
By dragging the [lnk.nu] link in their tool section to your browser toolbar, you'll create a button that allows you to make a minilink to any page you're on.

It also has a click counter, and will even email you when you want to be alerted that someone clicked your link
