    Is there a small application available that will show me how much data has been received in the menu bar?

    I want it so that when I connect using GPRS (using my mobile), I can make sure I do not use more than the 1mb I get for free each month. It would be good if it worked like a stopwatch and you could set it back to 0 every so often...

    Heres wishful thinking, does anything like this exist?

    Thanks for that link, Mitt. I've been monitoring my pageins/outs to see if I need more RAM, and this is easier than activity monitor.

    I really need something that shows me how much of my 1mb limit I have used up. It needs to show the total size of files downloaded since connecting or since the beginning of the month.

    Anyone know of something like this?

    I found a program called Surplus meter and it is perfect for what I need!
