    If your PC is on 24/7 you can run ping and pipe the output to a logfile. I recall either myself or someone else posting a quick script for this on this forum a while back.
    What would be a safe IP to ping without it being flagged as spam - and realistically how often might I ping? This is an easy enough thing to sort out unless there is some little doodad.

    I mean coding something would not take long but why reinvent the wheel.

        Yeah I saw that. I got a 3rd-party unit a while back after my 3rd BT one failed!

          google.com is the go to one. It wouldn't surprise me if google didn't have servers dedicated to the task (yahoo used to).
          merely at clientco for the entertainment

            Turns out a simple bash script can probably do it in one line though I've not ironed out the details since *nix cmd line is not a place I'm at home.
