I have a website that keeps going up and down, and I never know when it's up.
I'd like to be able to constantly ping it so that I can see when it's gone down.
Step 1 is to get the ping working.
Step 2 is to take the results when they time out and send a message to my pager.
I'm only interested in step 1 right now.
Thanks I hope you have legitimate intentions, as your "ddos" tag is concerning...
