Check Web Site Availability with Down For Everyone Or Just Me?

Web service Down For Everyone Or Just Me? serves a singular and useful purpose: to see if that web site you're trying to reach is actually down, or if your busted-up computer or network filters is the problem. When you can't get your Gmail or hit your favourite (hint, hint) weblog, just go to, type in the address of the site that's MIA, and find out if it's really, you know, down for everyone or just you. I imagine this wouldn't work perfectly in a multi-server situation—like if some Google servers were up but not others. Still, a quick and easy way to see whether your problem is widespread.


    I need a social version of this.


    That site does not work. Every time I've tried it, it tells me the site I'm trying to check doesn't exist. Which is because there is a DNS issue, which is why I was trying to check it in the first place. Useless.
