First saw this on the DownloadCrew… A nice ping tool for the tech toolbox (portable app) where you can detect by sound (like a heartbeat) when things are slowing down.
BPing is a tiny console-based ping tool with an unusual extra: sound. Sounds odd, but double-click the program and you’ll understand immediately.
By default the program immediately pings Google.com and plays a sound (from Space Invaders!) every time a reply arrives.
