Internet Connection Keeper allows you to keep your Internet connection alive so that your Internet provider does not disconnect you.
  • It automatically sends a few bytes to your Internet provider regularly so that it does not disconnect you when your connection is idle when you don't use it.
  • It does not use your bandwidth because it sends only a few bytes at configurable regular intervals.
  • It tells you if the last attempt to keep your connection alive succeeded or failed.
  • It appears in the right side of the menu bar.
  • It doesn't need any

There's a new version of OS X on the horizon, so I'm not surprised to see that these shameless thieves have crawled out from under their rock once again.

Every app they've ever released has been a hideously overpriced, badly designed piece of crap that offered either built-in OS X functionality or functionality that was readily available elsewhere...better and cheaper.

Avoid at al cost!!!

Firstly, if you have a dial-up modem you may want to look for a piece of shareware that will help you kill yourself. Secondly, you could try something like this from a command line: ping -i 60 -s 1 www.google.com

It costs 15 euros or $18.90, definitively a shameless rip-off... I mean slightly overpriced for something you can work for free from within your system.

Like someone else mentioned, this can be implemented in a number of free ways. But on the bright side, at least the developer isn't trying to charge $19.95 for it, like some very miserable titles I've seen on MU.

I personally have found this to be quite helpful. However it has not been easy for me to register online after purchase. I am still working on it!

I can just uncheck a box in system preferences and I don't need to open this at all. I don't need to have it taking up any disk space, I don't need to have it take up any ram, I don't need to have it take up any CPU cycles.

how is this done? I see nothing to check or uncheck in OSX system preferences, but I agree that this tool for sale seems like a waste.
