Down For Everyone or Just Me?

Friday, May 16th, 2008 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I can’t begin to tell you how much I love this Web site! A lot of the forums I visit on the Internet have bandwidth issues and they go down whenever it’s been exceeded. I’ve also run into a few sites that were having server issues or were shut down for construction. Well, with this site, I can now tell if it’s just me having a problem or if the site is down for everyone!

It’s so easy to use! All you have to do is put in the address of the Web site you’re trying to access. By default, they have there as an example.

So, you could put in and see if our site is up or down. If you do it right now, it should tell you we’re up! Another one I check is a game I play that does maintenance on Tuesdays. Now, I’ll know as soon as the site comes back up.

If a site is down, you’ll see this message: “It’s not just you! (Site’s Name Here) looks down from here!”

If it is just you, you’ll see this message: “It’s just you. (Site’s Name Here) is up.”

This is such a great tool and I hope you’ll get a lot of use out of it!
