Spring Ping Thing

Now I know what you’re thinking. It’s Spring and time for me to stop teasing and come forward with something dramatic.

Announcing Ping-O-Matic, the automatic pinging fanatic that handles the pinging of almost a dozen different update services. Erratic server responses making pinging problematic? Bookmark the Ping-O-Matic results page and let us handle the dirty work.

With the dream team of Dougal and yours truly, you knew it was going to be cool. What you see is just the beginning. Think a unified XML-RPC interface (One Ping to rule them all, One Ping to find them…), think ping queueing, think quality of service and response graphs, think different, think global blogtimes, think update aggregation, think Ping-O-Matic.

So spread the word from here to Beijing. More than just a fling, we’re committed to being the Kings of Pings. We take this ping thing seriously, so you don’t have to.

    Glad I’m not the only one tired of worrying about whether I pinged all the right sites. This is definitely a neat little tool…can’t wait to see it built into WordPress!

  3. Any chance that we’ll eventually be able to ping it programatically? Since you said to “think a unified XML-RPC interface”, I’m hoping that a simple XML-RPC call will be able to do it.

  4. I like the new version, and I use it for all of my blogs. I recommended it to my readers as well. Many bloggers are not yet aware of the concept of pinging. With a one stop ping shop, it’s much easier to spread the word.

  5. ~Is the Ping-O-Matic manufactured by the same folks who brought us the “Bass-O-Matic” that fish-blending machine pitched with gusto by Dan Aykroyd on NBC’s Saturday Night Live in 1976 or was that the Popeil brothers?~
