Last time connected to Net
(For debugging purposes)
I have found the my (WiFi only) MM sometimes “falls off the net” - which means that the info it displays is outdated.
It still display stuff, but there seems no EASY way for me to tell what happened as far as I can tell. I just notice that my calendar is outdated; that my Wunderlist is old; that my commute times don’t seem right…
Then I try pinging/SSHing & fail. Reboot time.
So I am requesting a (small) module that states “last time connected” so I have an indication if things are wrong. Or I’d like someone to tell me how to deal with this. Or (better still) the module would check for WiFi signal & then respawn a PM2 process.

@Mykle1 I did - I also run cron jobs to turn the monitor off & on (night & day). I just have “interesting” WiFi, so monitoring is not a bad idea. Guess I really should run a ping of the MM from somewhere else & send myself a txt if it goes down. I’ll putter around with IFTTT…
