On Shortening URL’s

I use goo.my. I have no idea whether it’s really named after the Pokémon Goomy or it’s just a coincidence, but I like the sound of it.

Moreover, it currently adds a handle of just three characters, which is far easier to memorize than goo.gl‘s six. Of course, this will change once they run out of handles, but that day isn’t coming any time soon, since goo.my also allows custom aliases, like goo.my/disc. Yes, TinyURL also provides those, but “tinyurl.com” is almost twice as long as “goo.my”.
