Broken TinyURL link glitch

I found this in one of SpyBot's posts, which seemed fine but became a broken link. If this link had redirected to some other site, it could have been bad...

EDIT: Weird, it seems to work for some people, but not everyone...

Hmm, and an even weirder glitch: For a moment there, SpyBot stopped tinyurl'ing the links...

what? the tinyurl, complete with hash symbol, is this: http://ourl.ca/7450/129045
That .msg thing is normal.
Edit: Deep Thought, probably because we were posting too much at once :P

yeah, probably because tinyurl couldn't handle the requests, and so the bot decided to give the regular link instead.

my bot resorts to regular links when something goes wrong... but I don't think it's my bot.

Darn, and again, the link to this post didn't work...

Maybe it's a problem with TinyURL, seeing as several of their links work for some people but not others?
