Crazy Little (!?) thing called URL

I just thought what is the shortest URL in the world which works :
Fairly straight :
http://www.com/

Then, I started off on a wild goose chase - The Longest URL - I have several contenders viz.

http://users.aol.com/rynocub/this.is.a.very.long.url/this.very.long.url.was.created.by/the.rynocub.home.page/which.was.created.by/ben.tolsky/and.radioactive.chicken/which.is.a.ben.tolsky.company/this.url.is.the.longest.url.made.by/ben.tolsky/finally.this.is.over.htm

One of these sites offered a very wonky e-mail service and I signed up.
Result :
inirs@abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijk.com
