Cool & Free Online Services

Some cool sites that I’ve been using recently. I’ll be adding more as I discover them.


Need a free monitor for your server or domain to make sure it’s online and visible globally. Watchmouse has 20 global locations that ping your server and will alert you when it’s down.
