Jacob Quatier shared with us his Website/Server Response Time Meter. He had this to say:

This is a project I did using several Adafruit products. It’s basically kind of a fun way to monitor metrics such as response time for a website / server / app / etc. I was tired of using plain old computer screens with boring graphs on them and decided to get something a little more analog together. The result is this meter, and I thought you guys would love to see it. I’m a huge Adafruit fan, keep up the good work and happy holidays!

From the project site:

…The whole idea was to create a giant meter to show website response time almost like a speedometer would. The result is something that’s both fun to watch and provides a meaningful ‘heartbeat’ of current status. After several revisions and different designs along the way, I ended up with what you see here….
