YOURLS: Make Your Own URL Shortening Service

URL shortening services are ubiquitous on Twitter. Google URL Shortener at goo.gl is currently available for Google products, such as Buzz. goo.gl seems a perfect domain (very short and composed of parts of the word "google") for google.
.GL is short for Greenland, which is a self-governing Danish province located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. The registration fee for a .gl domain is quite expensive, $129.00 for year, instead of $10!
YOURLS is a set of PHP script that will allow you to run your own URL shortener, a la TinyURL.
You can make it private or public, and a WordPress plugin makes integration with your WordPress blog (and Twitter) a snap.
Yourls, a server-based webapp that can run pretty much anywhere a WordPress installation can. There are lots of other options, which we'll get to as well, but Yourls is a fairly smart and fast way to get up and running with your own URL shortener.

Virgin Media Netgear Wireless Router Username and Password

As Virgin Media customer, if you find your wireless router is Netgear, then you may type the router's setup URL into a web browser address bar. http://192.168.0.1 is the default Netgear router IP address. http://192.168.1.1 will work for some Netgear models. Mine setup URL is http://192.168.1.1 . Then you are required to enter a username and password. If you haven't change the default setting, it is "virgin" and "password", you may find that on a label stuck on the router. This default username and password of Virgin Wireless router is different from that of the normal Netgear router. The default username of Netgear is admin and the password is either password or 1234.

URL cannot contain a Google host

Google just opened up Knol to the public. Knol is also serving up AdSense advertising on the site. Authors on Knol can enter their AdSense data into Knol, and will get the regular AdSense payout for every click on an ad. This seems like a smart way to reward users who write the best (or most popular) content, while still making money for Google, because the cut Google already takes from the advertising through AdSense anyway. Currently, I don't know how may we track ads performance on knol, I tried to add an URL channel, and got error message: "http://knol.google.com/k/-/k3-searching-tv-programs-using-teletext/2p3t2lhf3x6sj/6#" at line 1 invalid: URL cannot contain a Google host. Has anybody any idea of how to do it?
