Sorry, Ivy, am I repeating myself? :-)

There's no need to register for tinyurl.

To use it, first copy the long address, then go to www.tinyurl.com and paste the address where it says "Enter a long URL to make tiny". Then click on "Make TinyURL!"

When I entered your long address, it gave me this short one:

http://tinyurl.com/276dgf

which works fine.

Hi Mary

Hooray! I'm not sure what I did wrong last time -

http://tinyurl.com/276dgf

but I can do it too now. Good to know that it uses the same ref each time a short form is requested. Thanks very much, step by step was what I needed today.

Many thanks
