Thank to Martijn (@sexybiggetje) , Erik's Link Shortener is up and running :D

For anyone else who wants to have their own easy link shortener:

Amazing! Thanks for all the other suggestions, if I find myself in times of plenty, I might look at it :P

@Erik @sexybiggetje

Congrats! But, reading the source, I cannot but wonder: would this not work much easier with a simple .htaccess or nginx redirect-map.conf.

It seems to do the exact same, but with an additional layer of complexity and slowness on top (php).

Not meant as criticism on launching (again: congrats!) just my curiousity after building and hosting several link shorteners myself.
