Just to complete the story, I found


Which tries a site from 8 locations round the world and so is more

(http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ )

watchmouse reports timeouts from everywhere except the US and Canada.

I note that http://just-ping.com tries from even more locations but is
useless for frys as it is one of the many sites that never return pings.
