I know, I know. If you look at the link, you will see that it is too long to
fit without breaking netiquette. By truncating it or breaking it apart, I
neglect to give credit by citing the article's source.
I also dislike the idea of granting PageRank to such fundamental services
that are simple databases and re-directions. What gives? I was swept along
in that hype of Brits using TinyURL in uk.*.
If it is any solace, I have just done a quick Netscraft lookup <

site is Penguin-powered. Long live the birds!
