I recently proposed to Kerm that he, instead of using tinyurl, implement Cemetech's very own URL shortener.

The domain suggested: http://cemete.ch/ -- Which is currently open for registration at ~$20/yr

The format would probably be:
  • Post: http://cemete.ch/pPOST_ID
  • Topic: http://cemete.ch/tTOPIC_ID
  • Category: http://cemete.ch/cFORUM_ID
  • File: http://cemete.ch/fFILE_ID
  • And, of course, for shortened versions of long URLs used around the site, http://cemete.ch/RAND


I also just got the idea of maybe using http://cemete.ch/sRAND for URLs passed through SAX that either don't have their own of the listed above, or are external?

What do you guys think?? Smile
dooooo eeeeet!
I think this is an awesome idea! Very Happy
what if someone saw this, then bought that domain just to be a d!ck?
I think it would be pretty epic! Very Happy

I've always been afraid of this when posting unregistered domains Bad Idea
I mean, if I didn't like a particular website, $20 a year would be worth it to screw with them.
More motivation for Kerm to act quickly? Laughing

On a more serious note, I'm sure someone can delete or edit this thread if they feel it's necessary Smile
Eh, hopefully no one is that much of a a. I don't actually have $20 immediately access electronically, so out of random curiosity, would anyone have an interest in chipping in for this idea? It would give me two domains a year to renew, assuming that I could remember, but I think it would be pretty cool.
I think we could get you to notice and remember Wink I think it is a good idea, though I don't have money to help pitch in :/ Sorry
Double checked my account... And, it's done! Very Happy

You may now be granted about a gazillion Kerm Cool Points for this, which may be redeemed at an exchange rate on 2 firm handshakes per Cool Point. Wink But seriously, wow, epic awesome! You get many many thanks from me.
You should give him a customized calculator as a reward. It would be far less stressful on your wrist.
DShiz, that would be pretty sweet Razz

For now, I'll redirect http://cemete.ch/* to http://www.cemetech.net/*

Then I'll throw up some htaccess in a bit ^^,

Oooh, I like that idea a lot! Swivelgames, thoughts in that direction? (And DShiznit, thank you for having the self control to avoid the additional comment on your post that I know must have run through your head). Swivelgames, will you be writing the script on your server to do the rewriting, do you want me to do it for yours, or do you want to set it up here?
Either way works, Kerm.

It'd be pretty easy to just redirect http://cemete.ch/p* to http://cemetech.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=*

I was going to poke you on Skype to see if you wanted the nameservers pointed towards you instead? Razz
Either one works fine for me. If you have the free time and inclination to write the script and the spare bandwidth to host it on your site, go for it. If not, I would be overjoyed to write it and host it here. Smile

If you'd like, I can pitch in ten for the domain.

I would have offered sooner but I was extended at work :/ And my password is ridiculously non-memorable to sign in over breaks.
Yeah, I run into the same issue with my phone and my passwords. Smile Strength of passwords means time-consuming to type into my phone. Swivel, let me echo Comic's sentiment, I'd like to chip in as well.
This sounds really cool. What is the progress on this front?

Swivel is having some difficulty with the registrar; I think he expects it to be sorted out by tomorrow. I'm thinking that in addition to cemete.ch/f32 and cemete.ch/t6201, we should have cemete.ch/dcs, cemete.ch/sc, cemete.ch/gcn, etc.
