WANTED: 2 small? applets
« on: March 30, 2006, 01:15:16 AM »
see the cute little clock flash program below?  I want to be able to pop it on my desktop somewhere without all of the IE Frame BS.  A little frameless flashplayer would be so cool!

2nd, how about a ping box?  My internet connection went down for a few minutes tonight and while I was diagnosing, I had to keep lookup up and typing ip addresses.  Would it be nice to paste an IP in a Ping Box and let it run until click it off?  I'd like to be able to have several IP's pinging and have a little button I could puch to cancel 1 or all.

Anyone?

if you used media player classic to play the swf file you could just press the '1' key and you'll only see the swf playing, no buttons, etc.

Have you tried some of the "Widget" engines?

http://widgets.yahoo.com/
--> http://widgets.yahoo...iew.php?widget=38227

The new Version of Opera comes also with such an engine:
http://my.opera.com/...y/customize/widgets/

There are a lot more engines out there - German C't magazin had an overview article a few month ago - if I'm at home I could search it - if someone is interested...

BTW. this would be a great topic for a Review :)

But my windows is in portguese, which means i need you to send me a log file of what the ping command returns, both when it finds a host and when it doesn't.
My idea is: I could run something like:

Code: [Select]
run,ping.exe google.com > file.txt
And then, check the contents of the file, to see if the server could or could not be pinged. But for that, i need to know that ping.exe should return.

yeah, I can TYPE ping -t 255.255.255.255 and watch the window.  What I wasn is to copy and paste from my Router Status screen to a box.  I get tired of going from keyboard to mouse and back.  One or the other please :)

Sorry, somehow, i forgot to write the first line of my post...
The first line should be: "I can do this" ;)

So, you're looking for a program that would prompt you for a ip to ping, and then, keep pinging it until it returns something, when it'd say "yes, this ip can be pinged"? :)

I see a program that can read my mind....  ;D

This might be harder than I thought.  Can you paste onto an icon?  If not, I can lauch the application. It has a little status window that I paste an IP address into.  When it sees an IP pasted, it starts pinging and displays a little status line like:
IP Address       Last Rsp     Avg Rsp    Time  ( of first successful reply)
192.168.1.1     12ms           15ms       02:00:22    []

The little button on the end is so I can kill it off.  Additional IPs cound be pasted in so you might have 5 or so in the list.

I'm sorry, I already tried to make thi, and somehow failed, because the command line keeps appearing in the screen.
Instead, i searched a bit and found you 2 interesting links:
http://www.freedownl...t/ping-programs.html
http://www.snapfiles.../get/pingometer.html

Possibly, there might be just exactlly what you're looking for ;)

Sure if you want the excercise :)

I'm getting to start a switch replacement project, it might come in handy.

Here's the solution: ConnectionTester
It has an ini file, where you can set the test download interval,the page to download and if you want it to display a message when there is internet connection.

If there is internet connection, the tray icon looks like the one on left, and if there isn't, it looks like the one on the right:


Here's the compiled version: http://jgpaiva.donat...ConnectionTester.exe
