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.

Mac OS X 10.2.8 Update Withdrawn

Send Article to a Friend

Apple Computer has withdrawn its recent Mac OS X 10.2.8 Update, citing Ethernet problems on some Power Mac G4 desktop systems after installing the update. (Ironically, Ethernet problems were not among the several issues we had encountered with the update.) Apple hasn't said when it will re-issue the update or in what form; if you've been impacted by the Ethernet problem, a reported fix using the Terminal is currently posted on Apple's discussion boards; reverting to a previous AppleGMACEthernet.kext file also seems to seems to re-enable Etheret. Obviously, these solutions are not endorsed by Apple, and we at TidBITS have not confirmed them.
