A part of our team working exclusively for pingdom.com is back from Sweden after talks on further work on the project. It was hard work and fun at the same time, a combination that always works well at Troxo.
The meeting was really productive and will result in many new features Pingdom’s clients will receive during 2008. After the nitty-gritty, the team got down to a crayfish party, a traditional eating and drinking celebration in Sweden.
They say “one drink for every claw”, but few of us kept up that pace. It wasn’t all partying, though. Sightseeing in Stockholm, go-cart racing, a boat trip and a visit to an amusement park were also on the agenda.
And just when you think everything goes well…Remember JAT, whose uptime we had started monitoring before we took off? Although their site has faced no downtime, their service did have a big one. Our plane (after an unpleasant malfunction) departed as many as 14 hrs behind schedule. Quite a slip

Our dedicated team of developers building software exclusively for our client pingdom.com is about to take a trip to the company’s HQ in Sweden at the invitation of Sam Nurmi, the founder and CEO of Pingdom. Not to brag, but Pingdom is currently the fastest-growing website monitoring service in the world. Aren’t we proud!
As always it’s going to be pretty busy, a few of days of technical geeky meetings requiring a lot of brains, but at the end of the day everybody is having fun.
We booked with JAT and plan to take off this week. That said, we added jat.com to Pingdom’s GIGRIB for uptime monitoring purposes. Since early August the website has had no downtime at all and appears to be rock solid.

Pingdom Tools – Full Page Test, has hit the front page of Digg.
In case you skipped the news about Pingdom Tools website testing tool, here’s how it works. To help webmasters pinpoint the problems with websites and servers, the Full Page Test mimics the way a web browser loads a website. It loads the HTML page and all the objects in it, such as images, CSS files, scripts, Flash files, frames/iframes, etc. You can view the type, size and load time of every object. It even parses objects inside CSS files.
The latest version now makes it possible to share your uptime statistics with the public which made it appear on the front page of Digg.
You can try it out at http://www.pingdom.com/tools/fpt/ or direct from this form:
Pingdom is the Uptime Monitoring Company and the respected partner of Troxo.
