Nambu have resurrected the tr.im URL shortener service. Why?
We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the popular response, and the countless public and private appeals I have received to keep tr.im alive.
We have answered those pleas. Nambu will keep tr.im operating going forward, indefinitely, while we continue to consider our options in regards to tr.im’s future.
So the URL shortener is back from the dead, but for how long? That is a valid question, despite the fact that they are “overwhelmed by the response”, they still think that all the reasons they initially listed for shutting down tr.im are valid.
Would you trust tr.im with your shortened URLs after this affair?
