Pigs Can Fly Site Monitor Notification

I'm pleased to announce the launch of Pigs Can Fly Site Monitor for the Google Android platform, a free application. Pigs Can Fly Site Monitor (pcfsm) behaves like other regular site monitoring software, polling your website at customizable intervals to ensure it is online. Since the site monitor runs directly on your phone, you don't have to worry about haveing a second computer to act as the monitoring station, or any difficulties with slow SMS delivery.

Pigs Can Fly Site monitor is available from the Google Market for free. Users with the Google Market on their Android can download it by click here or looking under the Tools section in the Google Market on their Android phone. For users without access to the Google Market place (like NeoFreeRunner uses such as my self) you can install it from pcfsm.com.

In addition to the traditional polling, PCFSM also handles basic regular expression matching, and can optionally check if your site is linked from slashdot or reddit (as being linked to from there may cause massive spikes in traffic).

If you don't have an unlimited data plan, I'd recommend setting the polling interval to a very high number, on the other hand if you do have an unlimited data plan go wild :)

PCFSM is still pre-1.0, so there may be some bugs. If you find any please e-mail me at holden@pigscanfly.ca , make sure to include PCFSM in the subject so that I notice it.
