28T url checks the URL to make sure it is valid and attempts to look up
29the title for each url.  Links are checked everyday to make sure they
30are still active.  After 10 days, inactive links are disabled but still
31checked.

33<h3>Add TinyURL to your browsers toolbar</h3>
34<p>Click and drag this link to your links toolbar.

36        <a href="javascript:void(location.href='<%=[turl_system_url]%>/add-url?url='+location.href)"  onmouseover="window.status='';return true" onclick="return false">T Url</a></blockquote>
37Once this is on your toolbar, you'll be able to make a T Url
