I set up a "ping" session in which I pinged Google using the -t switch.  I did this for about 21 hours capturing the results in a text file.

I'd like to now analyze this file and determine, as close as possible, what time Google could not be reached.

My file started at 7:16:05 AM in the morning.

The file out put look like:

Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from bytes=32 time=44ms TTL=40
Reply from bytes=32 time=42ms TTL=40
Reply from bytes=32 time=34ms TTL=40
Reply from bytes=32 time=36ms TTL=40
Reply from bytes=32 time=43ms TTL=40
Reply from bytes=32 time=37ms TTL=40
Reply from bytes=32 time=40ms TTL=40
Reply from bytes=32 time=37ms TTL=40
Reply from bytes=32 time=49ms TTL=40

I actually sent 78,376 packets.  Is there a way, perhaps using the "ms", to calculate the time?
