Travel B-log External Links: limit 100 chars?

Travel Forums System Talk Travel B-log External Links: limit 100 chars?

I went to add an external Link (Manage Links) to my travel b-log today, for the first time. On my very first try, I think I've discovered there is a limit of 100 characters to the URL. Is that correct?

Your designers probably thought, 100 characters ought to be enough for anybody! What sane url has more than 100 characters?

This one:
http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=113411350869137563864.00044c4f847c2b3bf1f6f&t=h&ll=30.599503,114.286652&spn=0.141847,0.207024&z=12

The b-log entries allow urls of this length. Please allow them here too?

Sorry to be so noisy. Thanks for your attention. :)

Darn Google :)

Okay, rather than suggest a tinyurl, I decided there's really no big reason to have the URL limited to 100, so it's been updated now. Note that what you see isn't necessarily the entire URL. It was either this solution or a table that jumped way off the page and became unusable...
