minilink reaches 10k links

The minilink ( link shortening service first went online in october 2004. Today, a milestone was passed - there have been more than 10,000 links created through the service. Although 3,291 of those links were created and never used, this is a milestone nonetheless. In that time there have been well over half a million hits (558,464 as of this writing) to shortened links.

In recognition of this milestone, I added a few more statistics to the minilink statistics page.

Almost all the links are "demo" links that I preloaded that show up on the minilink home page.

You might be curious about the large spike in link hits near the beginning of december 2005 (see the bottom graph). This was some kind of Flash animation that seemed to be hit by a lot of users. Because of the volume of hits, I think it may have been some sort of worm-like behaviour but I didn't investigate.
