Simple URL Checker/Validator to check and sort active URLs in a list

I have couple of sites where i need to keep up to date list or large amount of web sites. It is not easy job to make sure all web sites in the list are active. I've looked around for a simple and free software to automate this job but couldn't find one that meets my needs. There are commercial solutions but I don't really like to pay for something I can write.

 

So here is a simple app called URLChecker to validate/check active URLs in a list.  It is nothing fancy but does the job.
