Tech Note: Our Own URL-Shortening Domain

LGF • Views: 24,491

It’s the Internet equivalent of the vanity license plate, but I couldn’t resist. When you use our little blue Twitter buttons to retweet a post from LGF on Twitter, either from a front page article or an LGF Page, the link to the post inside your tweet will now use our extra-super-special custom URL-shortening domain, lgf.bz.

This feature is provided by the well-known URL shortening site, bit.ly. Last December they launched a service called bit.ly Pro, which lets you use your own short domain name to point to pages on your site. Lots of mainstream news sites are using this service; for example, the New York Times uses the domain nyti.ms.

I was lucky enough to find a nice short domain name that relates to Little Green Footballs, lgf.bz, and promptly snapped it up. It took a little bit of messing around with A records and CNAME records, and some minor changes to the LGF Blog codebase, but we’re set up and functioning with lgf.bz as our short URL domain. We’re branded like the big boys now.

Changing the 14th amendment to eliminate citizenship for babies born in the USA created a hereditary class with special privileges (those born here before the law changes), & titles of nobility are forbidden by the Constitution.

So such a change is unconstitutional on the face of it if you ask me.

in order to know if a correctly spelled word was appropriate or not in context, spellcheckers would have to really understand english. given that most americans don't seem to be able to approach this standard, it's unfair to expect a mere computer program to achieve it

My father once spellchecked a business letter.

The original phrase was "we cannot run the building like a warehouse in Modesto".

My father, who is not a great speller, thought about the music store, and wrote "a wherehouse in Modesto".

The printed document, which was, THANK GOD, scanned quickly by his secretary, read "a whorehouse in Modesto".

Well seriously Charles, (or any of the lizards more senior than my scant two years) when does the blog start to hit the left center lists? That question hit me when you declared you were voting straight Democrat. Not that any of the above is a bad thing, not at all.
Obviously all the real qualities exist either way-easy to use, the code, well moderated, pages, etc etc.
LGF should be coming up the same lists that have owners with similar feelings about the GOP, and a declared straight Democratic ticket vote? What is taking so long to climb the left pole? Left bloggers holding grudges would be my guess.

Yes. I have been to Modesto.

"Water, Wealth, Contentment, Health".

I once had a teacher of mine urge me to move to Modesto because there were better teaching jobs there.

I said, "Diane, I'm not going to Modesto."

She said, "You shouldn't be a snob. Modesto has a world class symphony."

I said, "Diane, I've lived in San Francisco since I was six, and have never gone to the symphony HERE. Why the HELL would I go to Modesto to hear their world-class symphony?"

many years ago i worked on an application that helped write sensitive business documents. it had a list of 'words you should never ever use' as well as a custom spellchecker. some bright individual decided to save space by incorporating the bad words list into the spellchecker dictionary

so one fine day we got a bug report that the spellchecker had popped up a dialog on somebody's document reading "did you mean to say 'asshole'?"

re: #31 Rightwingconspirator

... voting straight Democrat.

That's the thing, though. Too often the equation in the right wing pundit-sphere is that "Democratic Party member" = "leftist/socialist/marxist" (depending on the fringiness of the pundit.

It's just not true, though. While since FDR the Democratic Party has become more and more progressive, there are still plenty of Democratic party members who are not "leftist" in any sense.

As I explained on my Page describing my registering as a (D), it was more of a "I'm not a Republican" move.

Same thing with some of my votes on Tuesday. I wanted to Vote for Brown and Newsom, and Chiang, and one of the local (D) candidates, but I voted for some other (D) candidates just so that the (R) wouldn't win or have as big a lead. In one case I refused to vote for a (D) because he is a truther.

Talked to my elderly mother, and she voted on Tuesday. She informed me that she voted against several incumbents because she didn't like some decisions they made. To her (in another state far away) the Party affiliations didn't seem to matter a whole lot for certain races.

Many of the current (R) politicians have moved so far "right", become so reactionary, that when middle of the road Democratic Party candidates are compared to them the (D) might seem "left", but that is just a relative evaluation.

50 freetoken  Thu, Nov 4, 2010 6:39:14pm

BTW, that's one of the problems the Democratic Party has. It seems directionless in part because there isn't much of a coherent set of propositions around which the whole Party rallies.

This is due, in no small part, because a non-trivial number of people who associate with the Democratic Party do so as a statement: "I'm not a Republican."

I baked 8 weeks' worth of Shabbat challah, and hoagie rolls for Zedushka and a pizza.

If the right wing had responded to Obama's election with principled criticism of his policies, we might be in a very different place today.

Instead, the GOP and the Tea Party base have indulged themselves in an orgy of racism and irrational behavior unlike anything I've ever seen. The Republican Party has totally lost me, and I know I'm not alone.

Instead of doing the hard work to come up with alternatives to the Democratic agenda, the GOP dove to the bottom as fast as they could. The Southern Strategy was almost mild compared to what's going on now.

If the right wing had responded to Obama's election with principled criticism of his policies, we might be in a very different place today.

Instead, the GOP and the Tea Party base has indulged themselves in an orgy of racism and irrational behavior unlike anything I've ever seen. The Republican Party has totally lost me, and I know I'm not alone.

Instead of doing the hard work to come up with alternatives to the Democratic agenda, the GOP dove to the bottom as fast as they could. The Southern Strategy was almost mild compared to what's going on now.

I think Rove greased the slope for them.

11. Pull up! All pants pull up!

12. I sense the conflict within you. Let go of your pants!

Frum sounds like someone who really, really, wants to believe in something from the past. Namely, he looks for the "morning in America again" type Reaganism, a time that really never was, though RWR did play the part well.

The is a cadre of similar self-declared pundits (Reihan Salam, Ross Douthat, etc) who act like they can steer the energy from the revanchists towards something more classically "liberal".

I think they are in for a surprise when they discover that the angry masses are angry for reasons other than the lack of well thought out economic policies from moderate-conservative think tanks.

The Saudi royal extended family has extensive assets spread throughout the US economy. So do various "sovereign" wealth funds from all sorts of nations.

Ron Paul and his buddies know this and hope by portraying the Fed as friends of foreign nations that there will be a mass uprising against the Fed, and thus against the money system we use.

That's why they want to "audit" the Fed, and make the books of all the institutions that were bailed out public.

And they can't be reasoned with because they're just not bright enough.

156 yasharki  Thu, Nov 4, 2010 11:07:58pm

Interesting how bit.ly makes money, they're providing a rather trivial service for free. It can be easily implemented by using let's say Apache's virtual host directives combined with either rewrite directives (which would require server restarts or at least killhups), or just plain html files with location.replace("...") inside. Such service could be backed up or replicated by keeping random-local-url to intended-target mapping in a database, allowing for complete recovery/replication anywhere.

The reason I'm being so skeptical about bit.ly is not only because of where tld is located (although it is kinda fishy), but mostly because of their statements like "We don't currently support the closing of bit.ly accounts"

You might want to reconsider using that URL shortener. They are all the rage nowadays because they are another way to track users. By outsourcing your shortener to bit.ly you are enabling bit.ly to track all of your users who click through any lgf.bz link. Which, by itself wouldn't be a problem, but when you consider how many other websites use bit.ly too it becomes clear that bit.ly is in a position to correlate users of LGF with users at other sites. That's creepy corporate stalker stuff -- does facebook need to know that I read LGF? Does my bank need to know that? How about DHS - it is also all the rage nowadays for government groups to circumvent laws preventing privacy abuses by simply buying the information from commercial brokers like bit.ly.

Hey, you may even be fine with enabling such widespread monitoring of your users - its a sad fact that most people don't give privacy much thought until their loss of it bites them hard in the ass. But in one real sense it is a problem because anyone who is not fine with it will just stop clicking through on any such links and anything that discourages users from using your website can't possibly help you, no matter how tempting it is to say "good riddance" to them.
