NAME - Windows system tray icon displaying monthly bandwidth usage


This script adds a tray icon to your system tray. When the mouse pointer hovers over it the tray icon will display the current monthly upload/download usage in megabytes of your UTV internet account. To remove the icon right click on it and select quit.

The displayed values will be updated every 60 minutes but typically the values provided by the utv website only update every couple of day.


Currently the script is configured by editing 4 perl variables.

 id             - utv internet id
 password       - utv internet password
 name           - name of the account holder
 hideConsole    - by default perl displays a console while it is running
                  with this set to true no console is displayed


This warning is (mostly) from Simon Cozens' Finance::Bank::LloydsTSB, and seems almost as apt here.

This is code for pretending to be you online, and that could mean your money, and that means BE CAREFUL. You are encouraged, nay, expected, to audit the source of this module yourself to reassure yourself that I am not doing anything untoward with your account data. This software is useful to me, but is provided under NO GUARANTEE, explicit or implied.
