Ring: ping with sound

Output is a tone of the freqnecy of the latency.

Fast ping times are low frequency. Slow ping times are high frequency.

Human hearing range is 20 Hz to 20 kHz. If it's a really fast ping time ( > 20 ms), you won't be able to hear it. That means a good ping time, I guess.

       Shouldn't it be the other way around (fast ping times are high frequency and slow ping times are low)? Beeccaauussee ssslllooowww ppppaaaacccckkkkeeeettttssss ssshhhooouuulllddd ssoouunndd that way.

       Ping is a game my friends and I play. Usually the faster computer with the best connection wins.   

       That's a plus.
