Huh? What's MuSeSPinger? MuSeSPinger stands for Multiple Server Status Pinger. You can check websites to see if they are online or offline by the masses.?
Why We Made MuSeSPinger Wa-a-ay back in 2008, Deltik was hosted on a webhost called IsMyWebsite. IsMyWebsite was a unique webhost in that it had 16 servers called nodes. The nodes hosted different websites. We created a tool called IsMyWebsite Node Status Checker (IMWNSC), which was a hard-coded system that checked the status of all the nodes.
Over time, IMWNSC evolved from its narrow purpose into MuSeSPinger. MuSeSPinger was then improved and expanded.
The First of Its Kind You may think that we have reinvented the wheel because there are plenty of other services that check to see whether a website is online like Down For Everyone Or Just Me? and CheckSite.us. MuSeSPinger is the first and only service that can:
check multiple URLs at the same time,
render an image that shows the status of multiple URLs, and
use a mirror network to check multiple URLs.
In addition to those unique core features, MuSeSPinger has:
a streamlined interface,
its source code available to anyone,
three different methods of checking URLs,
a user-friendly administration control panel, and
almost three years of dedicated support from Deltik.

Deltik History in a Nutshell The concept of Deltik was formulated on 31 March 2008 at 11:18 AM CDT. It was called DELTA Burnt Programming, later to be known as DELTA Burnt, then Delta Burnt, then DelTIk, then Deltik. Delta Burnt was a non-profit Texas Instruments graphing calculator programming group. The DELTA Burnt Website began to be created on 01 April 2008 and was finally set up on 08 April 2008.
On 07 April 2008, DELTA Burnt became Delta Burnt, which was a non-profit programming, gaming, and graphics design team. At the beginning of June 2008, Delta Burnt became DelTIk. The name DelTIk was a portmanteau of Delta, TI, and a k for "calculator". By the next month, July 2008, DelTIk lost its capitalization of "TI" as development on Texas Instruments calculators stopped and became Deltik.
For the first year of Deltik's life, it was extremely unstable. In the end, Deltik collapsed in May 2009 along with their fourth webhost, The Web World. Internal conflict and poor management led to the ruin of Deltik.
For the second year of Deltik's life, it was just another region of the Internet. Deltik served no purpose that year and was used primarily to host miscellaneous test scripts.
Plans to rennovate Deltik were made on 04 February 2011 and were carried out thusly. The goal was to deploy a completely redesigned Deltik by 31 March 2011, its third birthday anniversary.
1. We Have A Direction Deltik is a place where creative minds like you think up and make computer programs, Web scripts, or other unique and awesome stuff that nobody has ever thought of before.
2. New Management Deltik is now operated by people of the right ilk. No more internal conflict nor aimless struggling!
3. Community Restarted The general public of Deltik has been pruned and restarted. The majority shall no longer have eccentric people!
4. I Want It My Way To start off Deltik, I want to take charge of exactly how I want things to work. I have taken to my own custom development work, unlike previously, where complete strangers were asked to make something vague. There is now a site theme that I have redesigned to look the way I want it to.
5. Organized Design I have made a well-thought out layout of Deltik. Although some parts of the design are not favored by preliminary surveys, I feel that upon application, the design would be rather sturdy and somewhat flexible. Deltik was built around the content management system e107, and even then, I have made sure to allow space to be able to pluck e107 out and put in something else in the future. The code was made to accommodate change.
8. New Focus No longer is Deltik focused on internal conflict and selfishness. Deltik is now concerned about helping the users, whom are our bright inventors and idealists.
9. The New Webmaster Me, Nick! Inspired by Dale Carnegie, I have become a much better person. I can handle complaints, avoid arguments, keep human communication satisfactory, think new thoughts, acquire new visions, and get things done better.
10. The All-New Deltik Deltik's third birthday anniversary is on 31 March 2011. We've been around a long time, but it hadn't taken off in all that time... until now. For Deltik's third year of life, it's time to start right this time! Let's go!

... an online service that converts uploaded chat logs to another format and returns the new format to the user.
Before You Even Think About Using It You probably can't, at least not as of this post, 21 March 2011. Log2Log is on version 0.0.1a1, which is a very early development release. There are bound to be problems and bugs everywhere. We have acknowledged many of them and would like to fix them, but we're quite excited to get the first release of Log2Log out to you.
Why We Made Log2Log Alright, everybody! Storytime!
I, Deltik, love to use Meebo as my mobile Internet messenger. Meebo isn't "good", in my opinion, but one thing that made me choose Meebo over other services was that it has the ability to store chat logs. Now, don't argue "But IM+ saves chat logs too!". Firstly, back then, IM+ didn't save chat logs. Secondly, Meebo didn't cost me a penny. Anyway, I used Meebo often.
Over time, I became increasingly concerned that Meebo did not have a feature to download chat logs. As a personal data hog, I urgently need to have my chat logs with me where I can protect them from harm. Finally, one day, 21 November 2010 at 09:52 PM, I contacted Meebo support to request a feature that had been requested plenty of times before

After searching all over the place, we have finally located a half-working backup. With wonderful open-source software, we were able to salvage the unimportant half of Deltik from the 7 month old backup. Deltik will continue to be cleaned and made up to date.
My, have there been silly staff members. Everything before this post should be disregarded.
