[AusNOG] Status page recommendations

We were using UptimeRobot as an added 3rd party monitor for the last 5 years, terminated just this month.

Too many false alarms and irregularities that didn't make sense. Constant up/down/up especially on proxied sites. No it wasn't ICMP rate limiting.

We eventually moved our external/3rd party monitoring to another platform and the false alarms went away.

One of the drawcards to stay with UptimeRobot was their Status Page, however the service was not reliable.

Their market fit is for the public to visit your status web page
rather than communicate out of band via email and SMS when the status
changes over time.
