GAW.SH URL Shortener

http://gaw.sh/ was a simple URL shortener which I created mostly over a two week vacation using PHP with a MySQL database containing two tables ("urls" and "visits")
- I was no longer maintaining the URL shortener and have basically placed it in to a "read-only" mode at this point.
- All past valid (roughly five-hundred) URLs that were active have been set up as manual HTTP 301 Permanent redirects within nginx.
- No further URLs can be shortened in an automated way from this point forward.
