After an entire lunch of debugging, I’d managed to fix 2 URL shorteners! Sure enough, there was a bug in my JSON script.
Anyway, I spent a lot more time in the evening and managed to get the failures from 39 down to 14. This included 2 further bugs in the JSON code!
What has become obvious, is that there are few issues which effect a lot of URL shorteners – many are individual problems. There are also 2 APIs which don’t appear to be working properly, so the number I launch with may be going down.
I’ll spent this lunchtime hacking down the number again (although the poor, poor FTP speed I get at work really doesn’t help with this).
