This has some of the feel of url http://tinypic.com and also smacks of what i had initially intended to do with fastblogit except it doesn't have pictures.

Seth says
I notice that they are already getting lots of traffic ... probably because Steve Rubel advertised them here

Theirs UI seems simpler.
Yep, do less and you can do it simpler.  I would expect that at least a captcha will appear there within a month.

This is the only one I can't get rid of.

Can we do something similar to this ( like the ming translator ) where I can refer to a short text by url somewhere within our media  without the hastle of creating a text in notepad & uploading etc. ??

it can be done, but i would prefer to make it a button on the rte screen which would open a new window in which you could paste the text.  Unlike this spamers dream i wouldnt hyperlink within the text, rather i would display it inline within a scroll window.  I tagged it rte,$wish, maybe it will come up next time i open that box.

It started out life as a line in a spreadsheet.

See what I was trying to do with it on the Millet Valley table of contents line 36 (subject link).
I agree no hypertext. I was thinking more of something like the cartoon text line (only with some edit in it ) & having a URL.
Ok, i see what you are doing and that is not what i was proposing.  I was proposing an improvement in showing inline text.  For your application, if it were me, i would just make a new item and simply hyperlink to it.  I see no reason to do it the way you are doing it.
