Personal URL Shortner using WordPress

I figured after snapping up such an awesome short domain name (0lly.uk heh) i should make the best use of it, so i looked into running my own URL shortner, and went straight to a product i saw the other olly using on his 0l.ly domain name.

Its called YOURLS and the installation etc was easy, fast, and in fact within 20 mins it was up and working.

Then after also installing the wordpress plugin, i registered my blog as a twitter application, whacked the settings in and bingo!

I had fun doing this, its been a while since i stayed up messing about with cool shit online 🙂
