Does anyone know how to shorten the long URL for archived posts to
Usenet?

I want to refer to a post I've searched for, but the url in the
address bar is huge. I've seen others use much shorter message
references. Any ideas please?

TIA

Search the posts in 24HSHD where short URLs are used daily.
<http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&group=24hoursupport.helpdesk>
if you don't know what to search for try,
<http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=ISO-8859-1&newwindow=1&q=short+url&btnG=Google+Search&meta= group%3D24hoursupport.helpdesk>

If that does not work, 3 I know of are

http://www.snurl.com/
