My Personal URL Shortener

What I ended up coming up with was http://g.rff.me/

After using some Google-Fu, I found Free PHP URL shortener script that kicks ass.

Yeah, so what?… Well, I thought I'd explain what I'd gone through with setting it up, and what I discovered along the way.

So I know it currently looks pretty bare and boring, but it works.Current  Screen Shot of my Shortener page.

So I have some basic plans for it… nothing much for the time being, but we'll see how it turns out.
