Maybe because of this:

Unfortunately, at this time, it appears that the ChartLyrics website is down. It was up a few days ago so, hopefully, it comes back up in a few days and you can actually use this application.

The ChartLyrics website went unresponsive a couple of days ago. I'm hoping it comes back up soon so the app can be useful. Also, there should have been a check when you first launched the application that mentioned this. Did that not work?

No, nothing appeared on first app launch. Just the GUI, directly unresponsive (an empty Data sub-folder was created, though).

Thank you for everything you do for us!

I've uploaded v1.0.2 with better startup checking for Windows 10. The ChartLyrics site still isn't up at the time of this post but at least sLyrics shouldn't go unresponsive now. I'm pretty frustrated that the ChartLyrics website went unreachable after developing this app. The site has been flakey in the past, but not to this extent. If anybody knows of another free lyrics site with a free API, feel free to let me know.

What a great idea. I've seen at least a dozen different website ping tools and nobody's thought of this very important capability: that when some sites go down, letting you know in a way that isn't intrusive or annoying is a big help. Still, I can imagine some situations where levels of notice might be helpful e.g. playing an audio file, launching a program, a tray popup, and/or prompting the user.

Skwire's programs have been a big hit here (I use Splat daily) so I feel sure we'll get this added soon.

Please check out the latest version (v1.0.3) at http://skwire.dcmembers.com/fp/?page=tray-host-checker . I hope this is what you had in mind.

Finally go to test -- this is excellent. I can see advantages for web developers, system and network admins, and people who just need confirmation their network is online. I have some spotty wireless for example and I'd much rather have this program tell me than wonder why I suddenly have a bunch of 404 msgs.

Great program, thanks for making this available for free. :)

Wishlist

  • You might want to set up a notification option that only notifies if something is down e.g. no prompt unless something's wrong. On the other hand I can see some folks wanting something in line with a heartbeat monitor in a hospital.
  • It looks like any settings changes require a restart. I set notifications (in my test I used balloon tips) to check the process for 5 seconds apart. Then, if you set it to 60 seconds and the program still pops up every 5 seconds. You can fix this by restarting, but thought I'd point that out.
  • Is there a log file of some type so you can see exactly when a host isn't reachable? I ask because I used to have a web hosting service that would go offline from time to time (dreamhost) and I wanted to be able to point to specific dates and times when that happened.

Looks like I forgot to bump the version number when I compiled it. Try now, please.
