ICQ broken. Users can’t send links.

ICQ users are currently unable to send any links over ICQ. (This may not be uptime-related, but it was so interesting we wrote about it anyway.) This is a message from my colleague’s ICQ, and I never got the link: Seems it’s a huge problem that has been going on all day: http://icq.com/boards/view_messages.php?tid=30227&topic_id=896913 Please ICQ […]

Free love

No, not that kind of love. This isn’t the 60’s. We are talking about the love shown for our free 30-day trial. When we launched it last week we knew it would be popular, but the response has been overwhelming. A big thank you for all the positive feedback we have received. We are feeling […]

We just found a very cool site listing tags after popularity: TagsPage. It seems to be a tag version of The Million Dollar Homepage. Since we love these kinds of smart websites, of course we jumped at the opportunity to get a tag ourselves. $35 later, we are now the proud, exclusive owners of “uptime”. […]

Pimp My Fridge

After our Pingdom Cribs blog entry, we got complaints that our fridge contents didn’t have enough geek credentials. Since we have a reputation to think of, we decided to beef up the caffeine level considerably. Slightly more expensive to maintain, but it’s worth it! So, here it is, the souped-up Pingdom Fridge!

A new home for GIGRIB

GIGRIB is our free, distributed uptime monitoring network. One of the unique aspects of GIGRIB is that its monitoring network is made up entirely of its users. In return, these users get to add five sites each to be monitored by the network. Another unique aspect is that all the uptime data for all the […]

New SMS delivery system on the way

Monitoring the availability of servers, websites and services is a safety net for many server administrators and website owners. They rely on being notified the minute a problem occurs, often through SMS alerts, and this is where current uptime monitoring companies sometimes fail.
