We’re back with a number of updates about the world’s fastest link shortener once.to!
This edition’s highlights: phishing, abuse, slugs and redirects!
Shortly after once.to went out of beta the service got flooded with phishing and otherwise malevolent links. There were dozens of them created during a short timespan, all leading to pages mimicking login pages of banks, Facebook, Google and so on.
Today the world’s best link shortener once.to has officially lost its beta status!
Here’s a short summary of what we’ve been up to in the past thirty days or so.
Happy first summer day to everyone!
It’s been exactly two months since our world’s best URL shortener once.to has entered public beta.
Dear, we’ve been busy! These two months resulted in a whole bunch of cool features.
Even though it’s April 1st, I have some serious story for you today! It’s about what I’ve been up to for the last six months, which has been a pretty busy, interesting, and eye-opening time for me.
Long story short: we at Yktoo Solutions are busy building the best link shortener in the world, which we called once.to.
Do read on for intriguing details explaining what that is and why it is so fascinating.
My mesh router Netgear Orbi Pro SRK60 (see my review of the router) has recently received the firmware version 184.108.40.206.
What’s new in this version:
It’s an unusual review today: I’m writing about my experiences with the fastest-growing online supermarket chain in the Netherlands—Picnic—which has finally opened its virtual doors before me.
I’ve signed up for it a little more than a year ago and landed at the place 200+ on the waiting list at the moment.
Later I checked on the app several times but my number never changed so I forgot about it a while later.
Right after migrating all my images onto Cloudinary I started to question myself: how am I going to make backups?
Nothing lasts forever, including clouds. Or, for example, one day you can lose your Cloudinary account and hence your access to the hosting altogether. Therefore the task of making a copy of your content is quite relevant.
I’ve finally managed to migrate off the ever-worsening Google Photos onto Cloudinary, a pretty convenient and—for the time being—free cloud image hosting provider.
Time will tell whether it was a clever choice, but I’m positive from what I’ve seen so far.
I’ve been using my Linksys E4200 router for about eight years and was quite happy with its very robust operation. However, any hardware is destined to get outdated over time.
Firstly, as soon as we’d moved from our former apartment into a three-storey house it became evident the Wi-Fi coverage was suboptimal. In some remote corner you’d sometimes hardly get any connection at all. Secondly, it didn’t support modern IEEE standards such as 802.11ac, which was also hurting the bandwidth.
Thus eventually I’ve decided to go for a mesh Wi-Fi system.
