Unitz is pleased to announce the launch of downrightnow, a new service that monitors the status of popular web sites to let you know when there’s an outage or service disruption. The introductory post on the downrightnow blog says it best:
If you’ve ever been frustrated by an error message or other issue when checking email, managing a blog, or using a social network and you didn’t know where to turn, downrightnow is for you.
We’ll tell you if other users have also been reporting service trouble so you’ll know if there’s a widespread problem. We automatically track official company announcements and provide links to the best information about service changes so you can follow the latest updates. And we make it easy to stay informed about service issues through our web site, RSS feeds and Twitter updates.
downrightnow was conceived, designed and developed by Unitz. As a side project, it gives us a chance to show off some capabilities that we haven’t had a chance to highlight in client projects. We hope you find it useful!
