Realtime monitor your friends are online / offline status in office (notification)

Suppose I have three friends Rupesh Parag and Rizwan having their laptops then
the following script will help me to check whether they are online or offline and notify me if any change in the status

save this script as notification 
and set cron to run this script every minute

#!/bin/bash
rupesh=192.168.100.102
parag=192.168.100.101
rizwan=192.168.100.110
 
rupeshstatus=/tmp/rupeshstatus
paragstatus=/tmp/paragstatus
rizwanstatus=/tmp/rizwanstatus

start_time=$(date +%s)
