Autopinger

While searching for some blog search engines and aggregators to add to my list of ping servers in Windows Live Writer, I came across autopinger.

AutoPinger is a FREE and convenient service for all bloggers and podcasters. It is an easy set-and-forget service that lets concentrate more on developing your favourite blogs and podcasts…Autopinger will check your blogs and podcast feeds every 30 mins.

This is a pretty neat idea, and they do provide an XML-RPC interface in addition to allowing you to register in order to get the automatic ping action and getting the  badge to put on your blog.
