Branded even! I wouldn't expect such piping supplies to have a brand. I
know Oatey as a maker of ABS adhesive (suitable for various plastic

Lots of sites will let you include a URL in message and then will the
source *site* of the URL as a way of warning you where the URL goes.
I made myself a URL redirector site, a la tinyurl or bitly, that uses
wildcard DNS and the label in front of the domain for the lookup.
This is also great for naming images from imgur (etc).
Domain: "on-a.pizza"; label for the redirect: temporary-redirect
In Slack, eg, it will show the full URL and not the redirect to
another site to load an image. (Which in that example is from the
error codes. The https://httpstatusdogs.com/
is more complete, but doesn't have as cool a site URL.)
Another example for a news story:
But it's not a public redirector, it's just for me. I've written myself
a phone connector so I can create named links on the go and a command
line version for desktop. (It's a simple API, and I could create a web
page, but then I'd an account management system better than an
"Auth: Bearer" header. Login pages, ugh.)
