This program sends an automatic 'ping' to your screen periodically, which can keep you from timing out if your ISP has very short idle limits. Being pinged does not affect your MUCK idle time. The interval and message shown can be set to whatever you like. The output will parse MPI, so the program may also be used to trigger events you would like to run automatically at a given interval. Your settings are stored on your character, in propdir _prefs/ping/.
