1) To get my attention
2) To call me
'ping' is a computer network utility program used to determine the accessability of another computer on a network. Information gathered from the 'ping' program can also show the amount of time it took to contact the other computer thereby establishing if there are network delays between the two systems.
The usage of this term probably originated with computer hobbyists or folks working in the computer industry.
1) "Hey, if the computer crashes, ping me and I'll take a look at it"
2) "I'm not sure where on campus I'll be later, so ping me and I'll let you know"
