Short Web address site tr.im to stay in business
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Web address shortening service tr.im is back in business — just days after announcing it would trim itself out of operation.
Eric Woodward, co-founder of The Nambu Network, said his company's tr.im service has reopened in the wake of "countless public and private appeals."
"Nambu will keep tr.im operating going forward, indefinitely, while we continue to consider our options in regards to tr.im's future," he wrote in a blog post Tuesday.
Woodward had announced in a Sunday blog post that tr.im would be shutting down after about a year in operation. Because of its growing popularity, the service needed "significant development investment and server expansion to accommodate," he wrote then.
No one would take over the site from Nambu Network, even for a "token amount of money," he added.
Though the site was shut down, Woodward said existing tr.im links would work through the end of the year. At that point, Nambu was to decide whether to extend that deadline.
Tr.im is currently back up and running.
