I found this one today, it's by the programmer behind CleanMem (suggested here
, and I would also like to resuggest, is very useful at making mem hogs, like Outlook, let go of what they aren't using.
Simple Ping is a small program to help keep an eye on your current internet ping.
I made this program because I have a wireless internet provider. My ping times like to go all over the place. Well while playing a online game, I would lag every now and then. The game itself had no way to show me my ping. So I decided to make a program that could tell me
Let me give a few examples of people who would find this program helpful.
I have a dual monitor setup. While playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 the game never shows me what my ping is. It just shows a little bar. So when my ping is bad i have no way to tell just how bad it is. So now I have Simple Ping running on my 2nd monitor. Now as I play I can keep an eye on my ping at all times.
While playing on the net with your Wii, PS3 or Xbox you may need to keep an eye on your ping. You can have this tool running on your computer while you game. Some users have their computers or laptops close by. When the game starts to lag you can keep an eye on the ping.
While online you notice some pages are loading slow, you have other people in the house using the net as well. You see the ping is rather bad. You realize someone else is tapping the net to its fullest. You go check and find your brother/sister/mother/father/kids ect. are downloading a huge movie off Netflix or something. Since the net is being fully used up the net goes slow for you. You promptly beat them with your shoe and tell them to get off.
No, but the zip (portable) version does come with a very useful and functional remove entries reg file.
Shane the developer is actually quite nice and good at listening to his users, both in his forum and in a thread
on The Ccleaner/Piriform forum where I am a Moderator
