Thanks for the heads up!

For a while now I have been after a short URL that I could use for blog post pimping and retweets. This solution fits the bill perfectly as it never needs to be typed.

I too keep toying with the idea of getting my own short domain to use as my personal shortening service. You’ve given me the push I needed to actually go and do it, I’ve snapped up

Just picked up ɹǝpuɐ which points to my blog. I love it and its geekiness, my wife though, thinks otherwise!

Sam, thanks for the linkage, who’d have thought others would actually register upside-down domain names ;)

I snapped up aaron™ using this technique a couple of days ago. Was quite disappointed that it doesn't seem to work for the ♥ character though.
