Ah, to return home after an extended tour of Boston and the Northeast, complete with an ongoing bout of the Martian Death Flu. There's nothing like returning to hundreds of messages that I didn't read while on the road (mostly mailing lists, luckily) and to a foot of snail mail. In the confusion, I managed to accidentally send two personal messages (and a quick apology) to all 9,600+ people on the TidBITS mailing list, resulting in a number of messages from people who were relieved to see that even we so-called net experts can screw up royally from time to time, proving that we're only human. Or perhaps we're actually sophisticated artificial intelligences? [ACE]
Track Bandwidth Use with VirusBarrier X6
If you have monthly bandwidth limits, it's useful to know how much data you have used so far to avoid overage charges or being shut off by your ISP. But how do you determine how much data your Mac has transferred? Open VirusBarrier X6's Traffic window to see both current and cumulative traffic, and you can also create warnings when your data usage - incoming, outgoing, or both - exceeds an amount you specify.
