in thread Extremely odd behavior with net::ping and fork

It looks like you might be having multiple processes running at once, I'm wondering if your maincnc.exe program is starting your script again when it starts up.
No, the .exe is third-party software, with no knowledge of my script's existence. It does seem like my script is somehow being duplicated, based on the log, but I just don't see how that (or for that matter, the output in my log) is possible.
