    Shhh! I can't pretend to ignore my chat messages if people know it's working!

    Look at you, bragging about being a Slacker! 😁

    And isn't your sentence kind of an oxymoron?

    Ha ha.  Yes, yes, now that you mention it, absent the critical context of the sentence, I am both lazy *and* confusing today. :)

  • If you're Power Shelly, you might find this useful:

    Powershell
    <#
    .\Check-Slack.ps1
    
    Go find Slack.com status & report.
    #>
    
    Write-Host "Slack is:"
    $Slack = invoke-webrequest https://status.slack.com
    If (!(($Slack.ParsedHTML.GetElementsByTagName('h1') | Select-Object outerText).outerText).Contains("up and running")){
    	Write-Host "Down" -Foreground Red
    	Write-Host "The error returned is:"
    	($Slack.ParsedHTML.GetElementsByTagName('h1') | Select-Object outerText).outerText
    }
    Else {
    	Write-Host "UP" -ForeGround Green
    }
    

    Or, if you're lazy, (typing ".\" gets old, doesn't it?) I put this in my profile:

    Powershell
    Function Check-Slack
    {
    	Write-Host "Slack is: " -NoNewLine
    	$Slack = invoke-webrequest https://status.slack.com
    	If ((($Slack.ParsedHTML.GetElementsByTagName('h1') | Select-Object outerText).outerText).Contains("up and running")){
    		Write-Host "UP" -ForeGround Green
    	}
    	Else {
    		Write-Host "Down" -Foreground Red
    		Write-Host "The error returned is:"
    		($Slack.ParsedHTML.GetElementsByTagName('h1') | Select-Object outerText).outerText
    	}
    }
    

    Now be off, you slackers!  (aka "Get off my lawn!")  :^D
