Cody Pendant has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I want to run a regular script from a machine whose internet connection isn't always reliable.

What do monks think is a good way to check that the machine is online?

If it was me at the keyboard I'd just ping google or something.



Nobody says perl looks like line-noise any more
kids today don't know what line-noise IS ...
