websites not working- how to check

Editing - warning... My mistake... this site works, but sends your address to everybody and his dog.... sorry
The thought was there...
.................................................. .................................


FWIW
Several websites that I have tried yesterday and today, seem not to be up and working. My guess is because of Sandy, but along with checking, found this website that does a check to see if the problem is with the site, or perhaps due to cache problems or cookies etc.

removed link


Pings the base website, and tells if it's down for just you, or everyone.
................................................

Hope moderator will remove

OK... a little bit more... this gets confusing...

Apparently many sites are down... the website I linked was probably all right.
Subsequent to my original check on the site that was down, the owners decided to use an alternate link that went through tumblr. This brought up a few pages that I didn't recognize, (with advertising) and I assumed the worst.

If you're confused by this, join me.

The intent was honorable.

Here's the news story about the sites going down.

If you look at the links at the bottom of the Down for everyone site, they tell you that they "share" your address with everyone they do business with.

gotta stop trying to be helpful

The site I posted does not require an email address.

Here's a free utility.
