Netping Crappy nbn™ detector / internet status Free • Swift 5 • 10.14+


Have you ever wondered what the @#$%^ is going on with your @#$%^%& Internet and just *&^%# wanted to know if your machine can reach the @#$%$& Internet?

This is all Netping does. It pings the @#$%^#$@ Internet and optionally logs it to file (~/Downloads) and sends growl like user-notifications (which are displayed top right)

This is a menubar only application that uses "/sbin/ping" sending 1 ICMP packet every 2 seconds to

So that, when a page *(^&**& hangs, or your Youtube video %$&#@# rebuffers, you have a @#$%$^ idea of what's going on.
