Inspired by a comment on programming.reddit, I set to work on a “Decent URL maker”. There are hundreds of URL shortening websites like TinyURL, but none of them are geared to make nice-looking and user-friendly URLs.
So enter DecentURL.com.
One of the bad things about services like TinyURL is that people can easily point you to nasty sites without you knowing it — the URLs are just http://tinyurl.com/x8vz or whatever. But DecentURL always includes the domain in the URL to avoid this problem.
Feel free to contact me with feedback or feature requests.
