I don't believe in this approach. Polling for uptime gives you merely a poor
sample. My Web host argues for 100% uptime, but I know about the little
'scours' in-between. Reboots are often missed by a process that polls in
fixed intervals and if the intervals are too short it becomes a resource
Interesting point nontheless. I hope Netcraft do something on the matter in
the near future.
