    hi, I'm currently connecting to the internet via my GPRS phone. I get charged by the amount of data I've downloaded, but in OSX internet connect it only shows how long I've been connected for, not the amount of Kb I've downloaded... does anyone know of an .app that will keep track of the amount of information I've downloaded.

    any info would be appreciated.

    cheers
    Niall

    MenuMeters

    Go to www.versiontracker.com and run a search for it.
    It acts as a system preference and displays its info in the toolbar next to the clock...

    i remember a previous thread you did on this and I never got round to asking how you got on. Are you using more or less than you imagined?
    OT have you seen Bulldog's latest offer? £30/ month for unlimited 4MB and phone rental. Anyone else have this? Any good?

    I don't use it all now 'cos I get emails from my capped service saying 'you've used 75% or 90% of your limit' etc. Which is a lot easier than resetting MenuMeters once per month...

    XRG also keeps track of bandwith used (since last boot and/or XRG was started)
