Aimless Surfing Gadget - Still Waiting

I am still waiting for approval from Google for my gadget (or rejection or any response at this point). Today, I learned about an link lengthening service. That will make any url much longer. It got me to thinking though, you could probably encrypt a bunch of good data into a meaningless string of characters and let them hang out on a visible URL. Your data is "safe" because the string can't be decrypted and it becomes difficult for the user of the url to try to modify the variables he is passing to our web service....what a great idea....I bet someone has already thought of it and has already made their millions.
