one sad thing about ping is that it can take a long time to timeout if the remote system is off. This can add up if you are trying to ping more than one computer.

Just a thought

A 'ping' does not detect whether a computer is online or not... it just detects whether a remote device is configured to respond to an 'echo request'. As such, it's not a failsafe method to test whether a remote computer is 'online'.
