64 bytes from 64.233.183.103: icmp_seq = 2 ttl = 245 time = 25.3 ms
64 bytes from 64.233.183.103: icmp_seq = 3 yy = 245 time = 22.7 ms
64 bytes from 64.233.183.103: icmp_seq = 4 yy = 246 time = 25.6 ms
64 bytes from 64.233.183.103: icmp_seq = 5 ttl = 246 time = 25.3 ms
64 bytes from 64.233.183.103: icmp_seq = 6 yy = 245 time = 25.4 ms
64 bytes from 64.233.183.103: icmp_seq = 7 yy = 245 time = 25.4 ms
64 bytes from 64.233.183.103: icmp_seq = 8 ttl = 245 time = 21.8 ms
64 bytes from 64.233.183.103: icmp_seq = 9 yy = 245 time = 25.7 ms
