Internet Timer

  dogrex 22:31 14 Feb 2006

A number of Broadband servers provide a specail package for home users which limits broadband connection to 20 hours a month. As they do not provide a timer one is left guessing how much time is left. There are timers available for downloading on the internet but they are designed for internet cafes and are very complex and provide considerable unnecessary infomation. Can anyone help me locate a simple timer to serve the need I have outlined.

How about you create a spreadsheet or something and just enter log details of when your online and when you finish.

It'll save some program running in the background of your computer using resources.

I'm not sure Tautology Bandwidth Meter (TBM) shows time spent online, but RAS Graph & Stats does click here. Don't worry, it's simpler than it looks! It's what I use. G

PS - ignore my post if TBM was sufficient.

If you want to keep track of online time simply right click on the internet connection icon in the systray. This gives you the duration of online time, just note it down and keep a running total.

20 hours a month!!! I know everyone's needs are different but that sounds a very short time to justify a broadband connection unless the price is below £10 per month! Even then it's a high price!
