MMORPG Server Status

I just started teaching myself php and figured out how to make a server status box for a couple of online games. So far I've added a server status for Aion, Lord of the Rings and Warhammer. These are free for anyone to use. I made it so you can add your own CSS and I added a few parameters to make them even more customizable!


Note: These server status boxes obtain information directly from their respective pages (see the source of the page). The information is cached every 10 minutes and hopefully that is enough to keep from aggravating the site admin and locking me out.

If you require more detailed instructions, click the appropriate link below.

Update: The mirror site at motty.000space.com, well is almost a mirror site. I'm still working the bugs out of accessing the server status page for that site, so it's using the warhammer server status from heliohost.org.
Update #2: I ditched l4rge.com since it turned out to be so unreliable, sorry for the inconvenience; But I've found a newer and better hosting site with heliohost.org. The above post has been updated to reflect this information.
