If you want to use a bookmarklet here is a working one.

javascript:window.open("http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/"+window.location.hostname);void%200

Cool site, awsome idea, but it's lacking one key feature..  it only checks whether it can access the site directly.  the problem with that is that if you and the site share a common down gateway to the site in question and that gateway is down, it'll look down to both of you, but not to everyone else.  It doesn't use a collection of requests  or other tracking information to enhance results.

Also, it doesn't always work properly. For example, it constantly shows Amazom.com as being down, even though it's OK. Apparently, it sends a HEAD request to test the site, but several servers (including Amazon's infrastructure) reject such requests.

Some stuff is just old as the winds, that's when MPC posts it.

This thing has been up since '08 (same for downornot).
