    Isn’t this a geek site? Determining if a site is down or if there is a problem somewhere is a lot easier to do by hand (for me, at least), than using some intermediary service. Useful as it may be for newbs, a true geek would realize that introducing this intermediary adds another variable to the equation. Shouldn’t we be trying to eliminate variables in determining problems, rather than add them?

    You especially need to fix the link.
