Not a carp but perhaps a minnow or a small flounder: URLs longer than
80 columns tend to get broken into two or more lines, especially if
they have things like question marks embedded in them. For some
reason, Spaf's URLs tend to do this more than other -- I think it's
the Apple mailer he's using. Thunderbird doesn't seem to want to put
them back together so I have to do manual cut and paste to view them.
TinyURL (http://tinyurl.com) is your friend. Or at least mine.
There's even a nifty little toolbar button that will automagically
create a compressed URL.
