This plug-in combines what each of those files does (checking weblogs.com and pingomatic.com). Right now more people are pinging weblogs.com, but over time they will hopefully shift to pingomatic.com. Also, this plugin checks the two services on a regular basis without having to use an external file or a cron job.
