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.

Some of you may notice that this issue does not contain the "end" tags that we've used for the past few issues. We decided to take them out for several reasons. First, we've had trouble accurately inserting them and have carefully check to make sure we had them right. Second, they are not part of the setext format, and have confused writers of setext browsers. Third, for those of you who are importing TidBITS files into other applications, you can search for the string "return, space, return, space, return" and achieve the same result as the one provided by the "end" tags. Our apologies for the inconvenience, but we feel it is for the best, and the issues should look nicer online without the intrusive tags.
