    Because of all the "Is site X down for eeryone else too?"-threads that has jumped up lately (especially thanks to Adscendmedia being DDoS'd) like this:
    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cpa/162233-adscend-down-again.html
    (Of course it's important to check, but there are easier ways to do it.

    So, what do you do?

    You should open your webbrowser and go to the following url:
    Code:
    www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com
    And that's about it.

    Thanks folks, Hellfire.

    isn't it just a simple ping these sites offer?
