Cacti is definitely more than what you're asking for, no question about 
that.  You could, of course, craft a simple script that resides on your 
home machine running periodically that logs when it is unable to reach 
the outside world.  I would craft such a thing myself for my home 
connection as soon as I get the time to make the time travel device so I 
could have the time to craft said script.  :D

Thanks Tom for reminding me that the RRD databases can have the default 
precision changed.
