This flow gives an idea of the speed of your internet connection. It pings google .com, amazon .com, yahoo .com, facebook .com, and outlook .com. It then averages the round-trip time.
Pings each 5 times by hostname, takes each average and averages them. The flow will keep a running average in order to provide a baseline for comparison to the current average.
Pings in parallel to save time, so pings will be higher than might be expected. Also performs one throw-away ping per host to get any DNS shenanigans squared away.

Version 2: New IP for yahoo (the old one wasn't working). Is it silly to ping by IP? I did it that way to eliminate DNS as an issue.

Version 3: Added running average. The flow will remember previous average pings and keep a running average.

Version 4: Rewrite: Same results, more efficient. Uses 15 fewer blocks (really).

Version 5: Now pings by hostname. Added initial throw-away ping for each host to take care of DNS.
