    How hard would it be to make a Vista/W7 gadget that pings your sites every 'x' minutes, and just shows a list in the box like:



    www.something.com [up] 475ms
    www.whatthe.com [up] 475ms
    www.whoopee.com [down] --ms



    ??

    Just a random idea. There is no widgets out there that do this, except 1 that wants you to sign up to some dodgy site and add your site details, then pulls the details from their site.

    Haha nah.. but I figured they were using some kind of custom script or something, knowing MS and it's refusal to play along with everyone else.

    kind of pointless as you will only know if it is down if you are staring at your desktop. True services SMS you immediately. I will drop anything to make sure my shit is up.
