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.

Anti-Virus Help

Send Article to a Friend

An alert reader suggested this article, and I think it's an excellent way for the Macintosh community to pay back someone who has devoted much time and effort to it. Here's the situation. Jeff Shulman of Shulman Software and author of the popular shareware Virus Detective recently found himself without gainful employment in West Virginia. Although I'm sure West Virginia is a nice place, it's not exactly a hotbed of high tech, and Jeff has relocated to California, a hotbed of many things high and low tech.

We see two ways in which you can help pay Jeff back for all the work he has put in creating Virus Detective and Virus Blockade II, the combination of which is one of the most sophisticated means of protection available. First, and this is the easiest, if you use these programs but have not paid your shareware fee, we encourage you to do so now. Second, if you know of any regular or contract employment for a skilled veteran Macintosh programmer in the South Bay area, it would be nice to drop Jeff a line about it. Shareware fees and other correspondence should go to:
