    That's interesting code. I was looking at the display and dynamic-scaling of btop++ and thinking I would dive into this guy's code to see if at least the console rendering engine he's made could be adapted for my ping status board. Maybe even just craft a plugin for btop++ in genera l I need a casual coding project top play with
