Afternote to ThyPeace: you don't "make" a link. The Fool software scans for anything that starts with an "http" or a "www" and ends with a valid domain register (like .com or .net or whatever) automatically turns it into a link, whether it's valid or not. Typing it in, or pasting it in is all you do, no special tricks required. Like this:
