So, to illustrate why I'm changing my ping times, if you navigate to
http://zen.ae7.st/smokeping/?target=TOR, you can see gaps in the praph. This is
after taking it down to 10 pings every 300 seconds. Also, it seems curl(1)
blocks, and prevents the other curl(1) probes from executing as seen in
http://zen.ae7.st/smokeping/?target=Internet. There are no gaps in the graphs
for the other probes (FPing, SSH and DNS).

So, I guess take it down to 5 pings per 300 seconds? Ideas?
