Short info

It's a brand new week and Dick's getting shorter URLs with ShrinkMyLink.

Detailed information

Not a gadget, not even software for your computer, but a free web service.  If you have a long URL you need to make available to others, go to ShrinkMyLink, paste the long URL in the box and just press "Shrink!" to get your short URL which you can copy to the clipboard for use elsewhere.

Other similar sites include TinyURL and snipit.info.

Throw-It-Out Thursday

Deak, who suggested a Head-To-Head Wednesday in Episode 481, acknowledges that it would be too much work for Dick and Leo, and suggests instead "Throw-It-Out Thursday".  He also congratulates Dick and Leo for reaching Episode 500.
