Maybe keeping the window opened is not a bad idea: you will be able,
in example, to review the history of your pings any time.

Or, if you use emacs, it's possible to run pings inside of it's

By the way it is not necessary to run another copy of emacs for root
tasks. You could use sudo [1]inside of emacs either.

You could run an external program like [2]run-free or something
similar. But it will require an additional hot key to remember,
