Ping Google and display result in quicksilver


 / Published in: AppleScript
 

I use this to test if my internet connection is up, I run it from quicksilver, it's much faster for me than opening up a terminal.

  1. set strData to do shell script "ping -c 3 google.com"
  2.  
  3. tell app "Quicksilver"
  4. show large type strData
  5. end tell

if the ping_result is negative, how would I tell the system to wait 5 seconds then retry the ping?
