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 184.108.40.206.
So that, when a page *(^&**& hangs, or your Youtube video %$@# rebuffers, you have a @#$%$^ idea of what's going on.
