Quote from: uffeviking on April 14, 2007, 06:46:54 PMBest idea in a long time! Thank you Maciek. I noticed all the cover pictures of purchased CDs, etc. The only way I can manage it is so complicated going from this to that program. There has to be an easier way. Who can tell me, speaking English please, not Computerish!

Quote from: MrOsa on April 15, 2007, 01:36:35 PMOK, I'm not sure if I understand the concept correctly myself but since no one else is offering, I'll try to explain... The general idea is that some web addresses are very, very long. In fact, they are so long that if you try to type them out on a page of regular size, they won't fit in one line. This happens when you send someone a link in your e-mail: if the link is very long, part of it will be moved to the next line. This causes a "break" in the web address - the address might not work anymore after that. I think tinyurl.com is a sort of gigantic bookmark service. What you do is give them the address that you want shortened, and they save that address on their server and give you a very short link leading to the bookmark on their pages. Now you can easily give the web link to anyone - it is very short so it won't "break". The new link simply connects you to a sort of redirection page (because the full web address is stored on the tinyurl server). Supposedly, those links are going to be stored on that server forever, so once you get your tiny url link you might as well forget about the long version - tinyurl will remember it for you.
QuoteNow I expect to feel infinitely embarrassed shortly, because someone will surely point out that I'm speaking some sort of nonsense. But, FWIW, I tried. Anyone able to answer my question (at the end of my previous post)?Maciek

Quote from: johnQpublic on April 15, 2007, 01:44:57 PMThanks, I was having problems doing disc images with my Mac until you offered this solution.
Quote from: donwyn on April 15, 2007, 03:00:22 PMGeorge, Don't know about tinyurl but here's a method for shortening links that's very simple: Amazon. Simply copy whatever link you want and paste it right between the url brackets.(Quote this post to take a peek.)
