In a week I’ll grab a plane to the states, spending some time with friends in Philly (and recover from the 8 hour flight) to then take the plane to San Francisco for Google I/O 2010 !. Can’t wait!
Now I recently switched over from pc to mac for the major part of the stuff I do. But last night my ADSL router crapped out (during a lightning storm) and I had to get a new one..
Having no place to read reviews of ADSL modems (zomg I broke teh internets) so I went to the closest store the next morning to buy a new one… I bought a belkin…
Now appearantly someone had their head up their arse while quality checking this.. because the password change form didn’t work in Firefox or Safari. So in the end I had to start my windows machine and use IE7 to change password…
Just a quick list of upcomming shortner features:
- Advanced link statistics/link searching
- Auto link reusing.
- Profile customisation
- Malware check
- Export information
- Throughput to your twitter.
They will be put in some-time soon.
I took tomorrow off to put them in
XB fudged it up… so here I am finally writing something on my completely neglected ‘blog’. Luckely my trusty iphone is here to save me while i wait for the connection to be restored.
It got me thinking though. Is there a really secure way of connecting to home? I mean when I add the ip for the wireless of my phone to the hosts.allow or iptables I will open up the window for all kinds of nastyness from that network.
Well I guess there is no other option than to either wait till XB fixes it or go home and work from home for the rest of the day….
Shortner has been around for a while but always been a pet project of me. With me doing the coding ,hosting and maintenance on it I get little time to actually write about shortner :) Since the release of shortner 2 I’ve been gathering new ideas for features and optimisations for the codebase. But that time is over :) time to write something about shortner and get the api out there for people to use.
