I have my own YOURLS

Link: http://lkc.me/yourls

A while back I saw that my initials were available in the .me domain...and I had always wanted to get my intials.

Though, its kind of a pain switching domains and stuff. Was bad enough going from the old URL for this blog to the current one, and I haven't moved any of my email addresses from the old domain (have created some new ones on this domain though).

But, I snapped up the domain name anyways....because I had envisioned that some day I would migrate off of the old 'chen-online.net' domain. I had gotten it before I knew that domains with dashes are associated with spammers, and often get blocked on the sole basis that there's a dash in the domain name. Though, making the decision to change my blog's URL from 'lawrence.chen-online.net' to 'lawrencechen.net' was kind of a no-brainer to me.

Didn't find that out until I pushed hard on why there were a couple of blogs where I left lots of comments on, but they never seemed to clear moderation. One site admin said explained this to me, the other's was using a hosted solution and never saw my posts come in for moderation...and didn't know why. Seemed odd though since they were hosting for an official site under the domain of where I work....could just be everybody likes to type as little as possible so they just haven't run into the email address filter....

Anyways....I didn't have any plan on what I would do web-wise with the domain. And, while I do have Adsense, I'm not sure what kind of ads they would throw up for my initials and whether it would all be appropriate or not (if only to me). Plus I may yet decide to use it for something...someday.

But, then while I was sleeping last night...the idea came to me that 'lkc.me' is pretty short URL, wonder if I could set up my own, private URL shortening service.

This morning I did a quick google search on what's out there....found a matrix that somebody had compiled....quickly decided that it needed to be standalone, private, custom URL capable.

That resulted in only one choice. YOURLS :cool:

And, that's what I did....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
