    I was searching for this on BHW but couldn't find this info. So now that I found this I will share it with you guys:

    http://www.vapurl.com/ creates a shortened URL with a shelf life.

    Whatever your motivation for doing so, if you need to create a URL that has a fixed lifespan you can do so with VapURL. You plug a URL into the VapURL site or use the VapURL bookmarklet and specify the parameters of expiration. You can have a VapURL expire after a set number of visits, a set amount of time, or a combination of both variables.

    ... or you could just use our own url redirection service and have even more control but, not a bad find overall.

    I was looking for a link that I could email blast and have it change so that the spam filters wouldnt pick it up. The Url redirection service was also an option :D

    That is sweet... good share. I always had done that manually, this might be nice, guess the difficulty is deciding the parameters, but that just T&E.. Be nice for sending a link to a few friends, or could also be an easy way to send a download link to someone if you didn't own DLGuard.
