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.

CPU and the new PowerBooks

CPU and the new PowerBooks -- Conrad Halling wrote to tell us of problems with Connectix's CPU utility and the new PowerBooks. If you have one of those machines and CPU, send in your registration card, because Connectix has a free upgrade for registered users of those machines. In the meantime, Conrad reports that CPU's LCD Saver doesn't work if you switch screen depths, and there appears to be a problem with the backlight coming back on after it has dimmed.

Connectix -- 800/950-5880 -- 415/571-5100
