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.

180c Shortage

Send Article to a Friend

180c Shortage -- Pythaeus tells us that Apple has run out of the popular PowerBook 180c 4/160 and the corresponding bundle with Apple Express Modem. Although these configurations are in Apple's current "instant rebate" promotion, running through 31-Jan-94, the "while supplies last" rule in that promotion may leave hopeful buyers without the model they want. Apple's announcement that buyers considering the 180c should instead purchase the 4/80 model, or a Duo 270c, suggests that Apple plans to discontinue the 180c in the near future.
