It seems that I missed the big 5000 for RubyURL. I just noticed that the front page is showing, “5171 happy rubyurls to date.”

Oh the memories...

    RubyURL rocks! However, you need to modify your bookmarklet to properly encode URLs with crazy characters, such as google maps produces.

    The ‘url’ should be:

    javascript:void(location.href=’http://rubyurl.com/rubyurl/remote?website_url=’+escape(location.href))

    instead of the current:

    javascript:void(location.href=’http://rubyurl.com/rubyurl/remote?website_url=’+location.href)

    Thanks for the service!
