Simple Bashrc Cron Job Using Aliases For A Simple Interface

alias alive='(while true; do ping -c 4 192.168.1.1 > /dev/null 2>&1 ; sleep 300 ; done)'
Everytime You Run Bash It Will Run And Send The Command To Background In A Loop Forever. This Is Useful In Android To Avoid Getting Discconnected While Using ADB Or Other Services Like SSH By Being Inactive For Long Periods Of Time. In My Case I Get Bash Full Suport Only Through ADB And Also A Decent Python Interpreter Using Python For Android.
