I’ve decided to take my short URL generator and make it open-source. This is for a number of reasons, but I think primarily because I’m emigrating, and sometimes you need to just let things go.

ShutOff 2000’s code will also become open source when I release ShutOff 2010 (that’s a long story – don’t ask).

NCANE.COM’s code-base will be available on Google Code. I’ll update the blog with its exact location when I’ve created the project.

In case anyone is interested, I’m using the MIT licence. No GPL for me, thank you very much.

UPDATE: The project is now at Google Code. You can access it from: https://code.google.com/p/ncane-com-short-url-generator/
