– ZZ.gd broke with 403 forbidden error, fixed with setting different user agent.
– Move menu to “Settings”.
– Added option under configuration to choose ZZ.gd or TinyURL. Added 1 function.
– Re-worked the code for url shortening services, change in one place instead of three. Created a function instead.
which makes it easier to add more services if necessary. Bit.ly support in the future?

You can download the new version, I’ve renumbered the version number and hope to have bit.ly setup as well.

I’ve removed the download and placed all relevant information on the Twitter Updater page.

For instance, take a dedicated server hosting company that relies on one of many hardware vendors like Dell or HP (Hewlett-Packard). Its possible that said vendor will have stock pile of hard drives. Put lets put this into perspective. If you read the entire article you will see a similar situation that ended with Broadcom filing a complaint against Qualcomm. The International Trade Commission banned Qualcomm from shipping any new chips and hardware into the United Sates, and any chips that were already being shipped to the United States could continue. The ban lasted for 45 days, until an appeal by Qualcomm was successful and then the ban was lifted.
