I wanted to release a small program that I made and thought might come in handy. It is called the Ping Buddy. It is a very simple, windows operating system based ping application that helps you find out if you have a connection somewhere without having to know the commands or open command prompt. It is very simple to use as well. All you have to do is download the file, unzip it and run it. Once you have it, you can take it anywhere or send it to anyone. The process is very simple as well.
Once run, you simply type in the address you are looking to ping and click "Ping IP Address". If the address is reachable, you will get a green status light on the right of the ping box. If it is not, you will see a red status light. If the address is not valid then you will get a yellow status light.
To add a bit of functionality to the program, you can select the checkbox on the left of the address box. This will allow you to get message boxes that tell you if your connection was successful, failed or invalid. This helps if you are attempting to ping multiple places and need a clear response or if you just want visual confirmation.
