Tool Tip: Ping for life

I came across a nice little Windows utility that will ping multiple hosts and generate an email alert and/or visual alerts. This tool is called Ping for Life.

It's the simpliest and most powerful ping graphical tool.   --> Please see the rest on the blog : http://techish.net/blog/2013/12/tool-tip-ping-for-life/
