Over the past few years Gwids has become less and less useful. When we started aliasing, there weren't any good options that were safe, clean, and quick. Times have changed. Now if there's a need, services generally have shortening built in. We've become obsolete.
Thanks to all that have used Gwids over the years. Aliases will continue to work until October 1st, 2014. No new aliases can be created using Gwids effective immediately.
