That makes sense.  I've always sucked at batch stuff.  Like, I'll just keep
messing around until it ~seems~ to be working, never knowing if I'm doing
things totally wrong.

I do know VB Script.  I just didn't know of any way to ping an IP address or
get a shell response back to my script.  Like "strReturn =
objShell.Run("cmd.exe /c ping -n 1 domain.com") but it doesn't really work
that way...  The only other thing I could think to do is pipe the ping
results to a text file and read it with the file scripting object then.
Doesn't matter really.  Thanks.
