    Monitoring downloading activity-program?
    Hello there,

    I recently got into an arguement with my landlord, who claims I've used up 15 gigs in a month. This seems highly illogical seeing all I do all day is surf, sit on MSN, investigate (graphical design), download images and watch videos on youtube. I know youtube takes up some bandwith, but take a look at this chart down here.
    Now he's warned me before and he told me that I was using too much. I asked him if there was any way I could check for myself, how much I used and he replied with a no, and that I should just avoid any website that allows me to stream videos and such. But as a graphic design student I sometimes need those videos, as a part of my investigation for the work I wish to put out.
    Alright, given, I also watch some vids I enjoy, but I don't go over 20-30 small video's a day.



    So according to this chart I'm 15 gigs over the normal monthly amount I'm allowed to use.

    I've told him I was a bit sceptical about the amount, seeing I never download anyting and I only stream small video's and seeing he still wouldn't give me a list of the things I might've done to get this quota, I need some sort of a meter that'll allow me to monitor it myself.

    Is there such an application? Then I can just use that.

    Thanks a lot.

    Tell him to stuff it unless he can supply a detailed daily tally of your "supposed" usage. Or get your own connection!

    Ahaha, yeah, but he's the grumpy kind of man. He hasn't replied to my new e-mail yet, but a program that I could use would be awesome, so I have hardproof against him...
