JAAI came across http://gg.gg/ . Seems to be sequential five-character lower-case alphanumeric, 301 on success, 302 to homepage on error. Example: http://gg.gg/4jkvk
And http://smarturlref.com/ . Very small shortener (28k URLs according to the homepage), sequential, up to three characters currently, alphanumeric (including upper and lower case), JavaScript redirect. There are examples on the homepage.

I also found http://many.at/ , which is not a normal URL shortener as it allows for entering a whole list of URLs. (There are several similar services by the same owner, name.ly: http://afewurls.com/ http://faturl.com/ http://urlbunch.com/ http://brief.ly/ http://links2.me/ (and more?). It seems that each page has its own database.) Is this also something we want to cover in this project? [20:20]
xmcthat one would probably be best captured as a warc [20:24]

JAAAlright
I've looked at them a bit more in detail in the meantime. It seems that they all use non-sequential six-character 0-9a-z IDs, but I also found some IDs like "~MP0wT". However, I noticed they all have a /random.php (or similar) page which redirects to a random link list. That's probably a better way than trying to bruteforce the IDs, although it will very likely miss some links unless running essentially forev
er.
One additional problem is that their servers are extremely slow. On faturl.com, a single page load (including the random.php redirect) takes ~15 seconds currently.

This shortener doesn't seem to have been mentioned yet either: http://www.qoiob.com/ . Similar but unrelated (as far as I can tell) to tinyarrows. [21:52]
