    Sorry for bumping, but i was also searching for an alternative for DUMeter (and by doing so, found this thread), which was also a monitor and, for me very important, a logger (log the data (DOWN/UP by day,week,month,total). I found this, which is way superior then DUMeter and all others alternatives for MAC.

    Check out: http://codebox.org.uk/pages/bitmeteros

    And is working great in Lion!

    I believe what you did is called necro-posting, resurrecting a "dead" thread. The previous poster did a "bump", adding a post to a thread without adding information just to get it to rise to the top of the list (momentarily). The latter is frowned upon in most forums, more so than bringing a thread back to life. Adding new insights to old threads can be useful to others sometimes.

    Anyway, glad you got it to work.
