Yet Another URL Shortener


I wrote this a while ago for a different domain name but didn't register it in time. I found the code a few days ago and have just finished putting the finishing touches on it. Nothing special, just a URL shortener with a base length of just 14 characters and a minimum ID length of 1.

For those who care... it's written in PHP, uses MySQL for storage but the destinations are cached at runtime for efficiency.

I have since taken this down for reasons explained here. I rewrote it in nodejs and you can find the source code on github.
