A really simple URL shortening service written as a Python WSGI app. It's minimal and fast, intended to be used as a browser bookmarklet on the currently-visible page.
First iteration of the shortgirls.net URL shortener. I used to use bit.ly a fair bit, but what annoyed me the most was that it was slow, and just made it tedious to get a bloody short URL!
shortgirls.net wouldn't necessarily make the Shortest URLs In The World, but it would be fast and work on my own terms.
shortgirls.py is a single file, it's up to you to run it in a WSGI container of some sort.
shortgirls.py relies only Python Paste, to provide prettier debugging output in the event of an error. This could easily be coded out.
shortgirls.py is licensed under the FreeBSD license ("2-clause BSD license").
shortgirls.py was written by Barney Desmond.

If you make improvements to shortgirls.py it'd be nice if you shared them around equally.
