My Name is URL

Via mi hemano, an alternative to those URL-shorteners like TinyURL. This one is actually a URL lengthener called Dickens URL, which takes a URL and appends a random Dickens quote.

So I took my home site,, plugged it into Dickens URL, and now my longer, literary URL is;_ take_everything_on_evidence._ There's_no_better_rule.

It is based on the quote "Take nothing on its looks; take everything on evidence. There's no better rule," which Mr. Jaggers said to Pip in Chapter 40 of Great Expectations. I rather like that quote.

It probably wouldn't be suitable for Twitter, but then what would?
