Recently I have been working on a tiny project I have named “Pinger”, the incentive behind this project comes from my sometimes laggy internet connection, which causing me to Ping a remote servers to see what kind of response speed I get. To prevent the need for this, the Pinger application automatically pings remote servers and gives a rating indicated by a notification icon. Additionally this can be used to determine weather remote servers are running and can give email alerts as well as notifications. Finally my favorite feature is that Pinger automatically fetches your remote IP address from a remote server, which you can copy to clipboard at the click of a button.
I’m currently testing the application for my own person use but intent to make it public very soon!
