Thanks for the link, but it looks like it is used only for Outlook
Express -- I use Outlook 2000 SP-3. I thought someone had posted an easier
method of using quotes or brackets or something to prevent the URL from
being broken?

Thank again Phil.

Best regards,

Ken Pergola

Enclose between   <>
Need to put a carriage return at end IF pasting URL between <>.
Doesn't always work - don't know why it does/doesn't.

Hi Russell,

Thanks for the tip -- I think I tried that before but it did not work. I'll
give it another shot.

Thanks,

Ken Pergola

Simplest way is to enclose the URL inside <> symbols,
this works for most of us, but is often truncated when forwarded by some:

Perhaps  <<>> will work in those cases where one reply truncates the URL.?

The simplest method is to go to tinyurl.com  People used to do that on the PIClist all the time, I don't know why it has died out.

Here is an example (not the same one people have been using)

Hi Lonnie,

Ok, thank you for the advice Lonnie. I think I tried that too, but I think
Outlook 2000 messed that up. I'll try again next time I post a link.

Best regards,

Ken Pergola

The other posters trick of using <http://tinyurl.com> works quite well.

I hope that people who post tinyurls would include the long form as
well,
even if it wraps obnoxiously.  Having something you can click on is
nice;
but having a url that gives you at least a clue as to what the
destination
is likely to be is more useful (IMO.)  I'd rant about the possible lack
of permanence of tinyurls, but it seems to me that by the time you have
a url long enough to need a tinyurl, their permanence isn't so good
either.
(but at least you can backtrack a long but not-working url...)

People sure seem to charge quite a significant premium for that serial
interface to an LCD, don't they?  I'm surprised that hitachi/etc doesn't
come out with a version of their LCD controller with serial interface
built in.  Although presumably some of the extra $$ are for "smartness"
of the serial interface, rather than just the one-wire nature of it...

And to make it even easier to use tinyurl.com there is a firefox
extension that will create one from the current url and copy it to
your clipboard.

Very good point, especially if one were searching through their archives...
Perhaps something like this:

<<http://www.seetron.com/cgi-local/SoftCart.100.exe/online-store/scstore/c-serial_displays.html?L+scstore+lscp9087+1105535741>>

<<http://tinyurl.com/6e9dw>>

If we must stick with plain text, let us at least make it both easy and (future) functional.
