Speed Doubler 8.1.2 Update Nabs Bugs -- Connectix has released Speed Doubler 8.1.2, which fixes bugs and improves compatibility. The Faster File Copying feature now works from a locked startup volume, cleans up spring-loaded folders properly, and doesn't crash if a copy window is placed off-screen, among other changes. The update also fixes a problem under Mac OS 8.5 that caused a crash when clicking OK or Cancel in the Copy Agent schedule configuration dialog. Connectix recommends that all Speed Doubler 8 users upgrade to 8.1.2, which is available as a free 516K download. [JLC]

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.
