    232 actually:
    Try http://shorturl.p4o.net (creates goo.gl – google is private with this, so it’s a generator of sorts)

    and
    http://twurls.co.cc (direct redirection no gateways)

    I created my own URL shortener, currently (as I don’t have many links shorted) the short URLs generated are still smaller than bit.ly’s URLs.
    Everyone is welcome to use it without any limits. Check it out here:

    http://gooh.tk

    Redirection is made without frames or countdowns, making it really faster. You can get statistics for any shorten URL by adding “+” to your short URL, example: if your short URL is “http://gooh.tk/1l” then to get statistics you browse to “http://gooh.tk/1l+”

    Nice list. But i wonder why zxc9.com is not in this list. I am using this url shortener for over 1 year. They don’t have annoying ad’s or pop-up’s. They even provide API key for URL shortening and redirection service.

    I am using http://nn.bb
    It is not in your list and has a great feature: you can add a certain value to a landing page (premium access becomes very easy)
