Stop the short URL rot - use HugeURL!

URL shortening services such as tinyurl and bit.ly have been gaining a new life recently because of Twitter's 140 character per "tweet" limit.

For those with a rye sense of humour you can fight back by turning all your links into really, really long ones with HugeURL.

I was catching up on some of your old blog posts and I came across this one. I liked the hugeURL idea so much, I decided to create two URL lengthers myself. http://011010.com lets you create binary URLs, and http://IlIIl.com lets you create URLs which look like barcodes. You can read more about them here: http://IlIIl.com/IllIlIIIIlllIlIIIlllIlIIIlllIIIIIIlllIlIIIlIllllIIlIllllIlllIlllIlllIlllIlllIlllIIlIlllIIlllIlIIIllIlIIIIllIIlIlIllIIlIlIllIIlllIllIIlllIllIIlIlIllIIIIlIllIIlIIIlllIllIIllIIlIlIllIlllIIlllIlIIIlllIlIlIlllIIlIIllIIlIlIIlIlllIIllIIIllIllIllllIllIllIlIIlIllllIlllIlllIllIlIIlIllIlIllIllIlIIlIllIllIlIllIIlIlIllIIlIIIllIlIIlIllIIIIlIIlIllllIllIlIIlIllIlllIIllIIlIIIllIIlIlIllllIIIIIlIlllIIlllIIIIIllIlIIIIlllIIIIIIlIllllIlIlIlIlIlIlIIlIIlIIllIIIlIlllllIlIIIIllIllIllllIllIlllIIlllIllIIllIIlIlIlllIIlIIlllIlIIIllIIlIlIlllIIlIIlllIIll

Did you know that you can shorten your long urls with OUO and receive $$$$$$ for every click on your short links.
