# Ping external IP from wired network to monitor for ISP outtage

# kill any other instances running
# name log file day_of_month_down.txt
# remove todays log file if there is one, since it will be a month old

# run `ping -c 1 -t 2 8.8.8.8` in a loop, check exit code, if > 0, append log file with "2020-06-16 12:34:56 down" then sleep 1
