    Monitoring Social Activity with Java-monitor

    Here's a quick synopsis of what you've got to do:

    First, make your buddy a friend on Java-monitor.com's forum. Then e-mail them a link to the host you would like to look at. That's about it.

    Oh, how do you make someone a buddy, you ask?

    To make someone a buddy on Java-monitor, ask them for their Java-monitor user ID. Then go to http://java-monitor.com/forum/profile.php?do=buddylist to add them. It is sufficient that you add them as a buddy. They do not have to accept to be able to see your hosts.

    To e-mail a link to the host you would like them to look at, simply copy the host's URL from your browser's URL bar. Then paste that URL into an e-mail. That's it!  Your buddy will be asked to log into Java-monitor.com and he or she can then look at the host information.
