Nambu has recently announced to shutdown its URL shortening service called tr.im. Reason behind shutting down tr.in was posted as “tr.im did well for what it was, but, alas, it was not enough. We simply cannot find a way to justify continuing to work on it, or pay its network costs, which are not inconsequential. tr.im pushes (as I write this) a lot of redirects and URL creations per day, and this required significant development investment and server expansion to accommodate.”
However after getting lots of positive responses, they restored the service back. tr.im service is now working as usual and users don’t have to worry any more. After their earlier decision, tr.in have been overwhelmed by the response, and the countless public and private appeals which made them to keep service alive.
More details can be found on tr.im’s blog.
