I need to see if my remote connection to work is healthy and if my remote connection to video conferencing is suffering.
I wrote a little utility to handle that in the commandline. It’s dumb but it works. Let’s call it pingplotter. It’s in the public domain, go nuts.
It’s fine to just pop in a terminal you have open, but it plays really nice with tmux and glances (I use both).
I think I spent nearly as much time making these screencasts as I did writing the shell script. I should blog that too, if only so I don’t have to research that again.
