Cool Permanent Dialup Connection Using Wvdial

I have been trying to find a program that keeps a permanent connection to my ISP using wvdial as the dialup program. I found lots of dial on demand programs but none that keeps link active.

I gave up and wrote a small program that does this. If anyone is looking for a similar program just mail me at and i will send you the script. You must have a working wvdial. Wvdial sometimes gives a no answer and then doesn't exit. The script sorts that prob out too.
