New! Desktop notifier for website downtime

Update 2013-04-25: This notifier is no longer supported. There is a third-party equivalent you may want to check out.
Do you have a website? Do you like knowing that it’s working ok? Pingdom exists for this very reason, to alert you when your site has downtime, so you can fix it.
With this in mind we have released a new application that we call the Pingdom Desktop Notifier, which sits in your Windows system tray. Pingdom’s uptime monitoring service does the actual monitoring, so you have the benefit of our entire monitoring network. The Desktop Notifier checks in with the Pingdom service at regular intervals and alerts you with a popup if your website goes down.
Pingdom Desktop Notifier
You don’t need to have an existing Pingdom account to get started. If you don’t have an account, the app will create a free one for you when you install it. It even sets up monitoring of your website for you automatically.
The Pingdom Desktop Notifier works as a completely stand-alone application, but of course all the nifty features of the Pingdom uptime monitoring service are available at the click of a mouse button if you want to use them (it has a direct link to the Pingdom control panel).
Those of you who are already using Pingdom can think of this as a complement to other alerting methods such as email, SMS, Twitter and iPhone push notifications.
The app works for Windows XP/Vista/7.
