Hail Pythonistas universal and triumphant,

I seem to recall that there is a way (script) to check a server to see if it
is alive. Maybe Vaults of Parnassus, but I didn't see it when I checked.

Is anyone aware of something like that? Does anyone have something (code,
tips, urls, whatever) they could share?

My platform Wind*** 2000; IIS server residing on another machine. Py 2.2

Any help at all would be most appreciated! ;-)
