*TWO*? I must have missed the second one. Well, congrats! :-)

There are various munin plugins you could use. Sunjammer is already
monitoring jita, so all you have to do is go to jita and enable a munin
plugin which sends a get request to the website and check the response.
You can probably also graph the response time. I think there's already
something in the default munin installation.

Once the plugin is running, you can setup thresholds to get notified
over email. And you can set the email address to an SMS gateway to get
notified on your phone.

If the version of munin running on jita is too old, try upgrading to
munin 2.0. There are packages on launchpad. There are also extra plugins
that you can install by hand.

Chat me on #sugar for more details. But not now, I'm busy busy busy.
