@320x200 oooh love this! Was just thinking how I wished more things used URL parameters in this way instead of unnecessary databases.

@ojack totally! the web application in itself is cool, but the way they are (ab)using the URL to store everything is super nice :) it also reminded me of this

@320x200 ooh this is really cool! I do something similar in hydra where I save the code that generates the visuals to the URL, but the URLs get really long. nice to integrate the shortener in this way.
