Now, my Blog Service Pinger has its own domain name. Together with Matt Mullenweg, I’ll be adding new features to the pinger over time. Major enhancements in the current version:
- Your blog name and uri are stored in cookies, and automagically filled in for you when you return.
- The pinger output dynamically appears in your browser as each ping completes. You no longer have to wait for all of the pings to complete before your browser loads the page.
- Fixed the RubHub ping so that it actually works now.
- Improved some of the error output.
We have lots of other plans for development. Soon, we will have our own ping API, and ping-o-matic will be the only site you ever need to ping.
