Up: Sensory Mechanism: TPing
This measures the time in milliseconds, that it
takes for the TPing request to cross the net and return. This gives a
measure of the `` distance'' between nodes, in the sense that I have
discussed it in my ruminations on the topology of cyberspace 
(see also http://www.isd.atr.co.jp/~ray/pubs/fatm/node5.html).
