If you need absolutely anything, the Internet is ready to serve you. Alas, websites these days have grown so overly complex, it’s easy to forget the smaller, useful websites that serve their purpose quickly and let you get on with your life in less than a minute. Heck, some websites are so useful you may need them on a daily basis…but whatever your needs may be, these ten sites promise to make it a quick, painless visit:

10. Down for everyone or just me?

down for everyone or just me

Nothing’s worse than clicking on a website and waiting eons for it to load. But when it’s a larger site that’s giving you problems, you have to wonder…would this be fixed with a quick router reset? Is the problem on my end? Well, simply go to this website, type in the site that’s giving you problems, and get your answer quickly. Who knows, maybe it’s down for everyone too. And yes, you’ll be the first one on the Internet to type in downforeveryoneorjustme.com in the form, you crazy dog you.

9. Ding, it’s up

Ding It’s Up is a free service that alerts you via text (SMS), twitter or email when a website goes down or when it comes back up. They will never send you a text/email unless it is to inform you about a website you requested information for – you can unsubscribe at any time.

When deciding on a server you want to make sure you have enough system resources to handle the load of your website. We’d recommend at least 2 Gigs worth of memory cards and a fast processor. If you are concerned about uptime, it may be a good idea to use uptime monitors.

Ding, it’s Up!

1. RunPee

runpee

RunPee.com helps you know when to run and pee during a movie without missing a crucial or entertaining scene.

Fact: any time you pay for a premium movie ticket, you will have to go to the bathroom during the film, during what could be the worst possible time, with a restroom that’s the furthest possible from your theater. RunPee alleviates this problem with time stamps that tell you when a safe time is to use the restroom, as well as providing a quick summary of what you missed while you’re away.
