Several weeks ago I mentioned a new ping service that I’ve been using for my blog, but I wasn’t able to give details since it was experimental. Well, the cat is now out of the bag!
PingQueue is Joseph’s recently-announced ping service. Details of this service are available via the links in this entry. But in a nutshell, the advantage of this service is that ping requests are queued up–this sounds like a disadvantage, but the response time for adding a request to the queue is much faster than synchronously pinging multiple services.
Check it out! I’ve been using this service for the last 1.5 months or so, and I’ve been very happy with it.
