My new shortener is, heres how to get your own, for free

I started playign with again tonight, i got access to the Pro Beta awhile ago and after setting up my domain I never added in the A records for a true shorter url. (you can get the pro signup here)

Then i remembered about my new best buddies over at .tk and went and got (prettymuch anything over 4 letters is fair game and free) so im kinda cheap and while im working on changing my mindset i still like to use free services where I can so i hit up the free dns service and pointed my A record to the ip

so once the domain was registered and pointed all using free services i got all these pretty charts and my tweet of victory
Now when sharing from my dashboard I get my custom domain and all kinds of neato stats aswell zOmg check out that sweet new url shorter :)less than a minute ago via bitly

Have yall got your beta invites yet? What do you think about the .tk tld? Stupid Blackbird Pie tweet embed extension doesn't recognize ajaxy urls... what gives with that? Talk in the comments, i dare ya

oh and for a free name to use just get a free .tk
