Srikanth,

 Good work. I liked this tool as a tester when you sent to me. Apart from the 
ease of keying in from mobile browsers, this has the advantage of being a short 
url that'll indicate what the target link is about.

"That language is an instrument of human reason, and not merely a medium for 
the expression of thought, is a truth generally admitted."
