Hello,

What is the command for an extended ping in Linux? I've Googled it but can't seem to find it.

Thanks!

The -s option isn't right, that is for if you want to specify a packet size. You should be able to just use ping <ip address> and it will keep going and going and going until you ctrl+c to stop it. If you only want it to ping a certain number of times then quit on its own, use the -c option, like this: ping -c 10 192.168.1.1

It might have been a canoe paddle. Or a hockey stick.

Possibly. I did come down with a splitting headache a few days ago.
