I hesitate to take

I hesitate to take up valuable Talking Points real estate with housekeeping info. But here goes: Many readers have asked/complained (“Dear Talk”, “Dear Points”, “Dear Lord of the Point”, etc.) about not being able to give people the link to a particular post on the site – since, of course, they just keep scrolling down day after day.

People! You can already! It sounds a touch complicated. But it’s pretty easy.


Every entry is date-stamped and has it’s own unique address. So for instance this entry is January 31st 2001 at 2:24 PM – as it says in the datestamp above. So that means you take the normal address (http://talkingpointsmemo.com/index.html) and a ‘#’ and then the date and the time all run together ‘013101224pm’ like so.

So http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com> is the link to this entry.

(Note: Since this page is now archived it is no longer index.html# but jan0104.html# etc.)

Pretty cool, eh?

Next we return to the standard vital political intelligence from Talking Points. And coming soon TPM gets its own custom URL (Internet address)!
