Good idea bad implemented: notify.me

From “about us” on the website:

notify.me delivers notifications that interest you in near real time. It eliminates the need for you to constantly check on classified listings, blogs or social networking sites. Notifications are pushed to your destinations of choice such as instant messenger, mobile phone, email, desktop or web application. Check out our wiki for examples of how people are using the service.

 

Sounds good… I always wanted to have something like this to filter my pages.

But it doesn’t really work… for some reasons.

Send via IM doesn’t even authenticate.

Adding an URL ends up in a disaster:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@notify.me and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.


Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at www.notify.me Port 80

I sent them an email to webmaster (what a useless action) and to their gestsatisfaction.com forum.

Let’s see if I get a response.
