What host is giving you that error?

Yes, "http://tinyurl.com"; works for me:

sm01@stt008:~$ wget http://tinyurl.com

That's a different issue. There is nothing that needs to be teached here 
because we are talking about "preferences". You don't like tinyurl and 
that's okay, no one can blame you for that, but in the same way you can't 
also blame others for use it... even less when that person was willing to 
help you.
