Hi Michiel,

thanks for your script which is really nice (state its licence, GPL I 
hope, please).

Today I was called while still sleeping from school, because after our 
server had restarted over night (power loss), LTSP couldn't connect to 
tjener any more (because it started to fast). Such a script here could 
have meant more sleep to me ;)

- Inundadion in NL
- DSL router error.

Whilst the first two poin't won't happen very likely, the latter is 
quite common. In such cases the script should possibly stop with an 
error like: "restarting network doesn't help, stop working".

Also the service could respawn itself after variable periods of times 
(alternative to cronjob).

Instead of google.nl debian.org could be used (would we like it?) or 
maybe rather the IP of the DSL router (
