Monitor internet downtime...

by John.Wilkinson / September 4, 2005 6:11 AM PDT

During the times I'm at home on my computer, I enjoy my hobby of recording the dates and times when my cable internet connection goes down. Now I would like to take it a bit further by finding a program that will perform my hobby even when I'm away from my computer. Then, at the end of the month, I'd be able to take the logs of my hobby to my cable company and show that their service is actually lousier that I am currently aware of. Might someone know of a program capable of logging the dates and times an internet connection goes up and down, thus enabling me to add more nails to the coffin?

Thanks in advance,
