Previewing Links

What I learned today: if you want to see where a link points, without actually looking at the page, append a plus sign to the URL. That is, if someone points you at, then will give you the long URL.

    TinyURL did this a while ago. Very good & safe idea. They replaced WWW with Preview, as in Preview.TinyURL.Com/whatever_it_is, and it gave the link name spelled out so you knew what was coming. Nice feature.
