How many times have you needed to visit a website, only to find it’s down? And the time you waste hitting “refresh” to see if it’s up again only adds to the frustration. Now, do this instead:

Visit Ding It’s Up, set up an alert and move on to your next task.

This free web tool allows busy users to set up an alert which will automatically send a message when the website goes back up. Notification options include:

  • an e-mail alert
  • a text alert, and
  • a tweet alert.

Check it out and tell us how much time (and frustration) it saved you in the comments box below.
