A short link is a URL with fewer characters that redirects to a longer destination URL. There are several reasons for wanting to shorten a link. They take less time to type, are easier to remember, easier to share, and allow click tracking. You may see short links from services like T.LY, Bitly, TinyURL shared around the web. Shortening a link masks the original link, and its true destination becomes unknown. It’s important to know the destination when clicking on a link, especially if the short link is on an untrusted website or email.
Recently I added the ability for users to add custom domains to the link shortener T.LY. This allows users to add their own domains to brand their short URLs. Custom domains are included in all subscription plans. Want to be able to share links with your own domain? Click here to add your domain. Read More
If you have a need to wirelessly monitor the temperature or humidity of a room, attic or even a crawl space, the Govee Thermometer Hygrometer is a great device! I currently have 3 of them monitoring my attic, crawl space, and kid’s room. They have a nice screen but also sync over Bluetooth with your smartphone. They take 2 AAA batteries after a couple of months still are showing full for the battery status.
They are great for real-time temperature and humidity readings but also store 20-day historical data that can be viewed and exported from the app. You can also set high/low alarms for both temperature and humidity but since they are Bluetooth, you do have to be within 100 ft of the device to get an alert.
For $15, the Govee is a great deal and I highly recommend them!
