Regarding archiving

Just randomly requesting TinyURLs like you propose will get you banned since you are making many requests for non-existent TinyURLs. We do allow bots to crawl TinyURLs, but only if they are crawling TinyURLs that exist which they pulled from whatever source they are crawling.

tinyurl ID | full URL

And scraping won't be necessary. Up for it?
