Welcome! and rules

Kyle Tinsley designed Shrinkster the other day (http://neopoleon.com/blog/default.aspx), a .Net clone of TinyURL. I was just wondering how the URL Rewriting is done so that that the URL is absolutely minimal? Did he write a HTTP module or handler? If you have any ideas thank you for your contributing answers! :D
An HTTP handler mapped to URL pattern "*". You also need to make sure that all requests are mapped to the ASP.NET ISAPI filter in IIS.

Brad you are the bomb.
I have been trying to do some similar ASP.NET URL rewriting with asp.net for a while now and have not had any luck. Then, I see that Kyle pulled it off with shrinkster. any non-file value in the root will kick back a finle not found message. yet http://shrinkster.com/x is valid. Hmm. I still cannot get it to work even with brad's suggestions. Is there a particular version of IIS required. TIA
