Default Monitoring service recommendation

A client just alerted me to the fact that his web site had stopped working (a cock-up over DNS changes), so having tried several rather annoying monitoring services, I have created an account at montastic.com - which advertises itself as "The free website monitoring service that doesn't suck" - which is quite true. It took me about 5 mins to add all my client sites (you can add up to 100), and you get an email alert every time a watched site is down, and again when it's up.

Simple, free, and does what it says in the tin, to paraphrase the ad.

There are also widgets to keep track on your desktop without logging in (for Mac, Windows, and Yahoo accounts) which I haven't tried yet.
