Well, of course, bit.ly is blocked on our network as well, as it seems
ibm.biz is too. I can see why these shortcut sites are blocked as
opening them up would be tantamount to allowing access to the whole
interweb. That's why it would be nice if IBM had an ibm.com address to
use as we already have access to that. I could, of course, request
access to ibm.biz, but that would only get approved if IBMers make more
use of it.

Nice work, Hoss, but unfortunately our network team block tinyurl -
understandably so!

Of all the URL shortening services, Tinyurl is probably the best because
of their 'preview' function: https://preview.tinyurl.com/kf3brnf Of
course you can't try it because the network people have blocked the
domain, but try it at home; you might be impressed.

In any event, for those still having issues: http://bit.ly/SL5EXp

Well done, Edmund!

Just one thought - wouldn't it be awesome if IBM had their own version
of bit.ly - it took me 3 attempts to successfully paste that URL into
my
browser :-)
