Keep track of your bandwidth usage.

If you're on either the University Network or have Flexabit as your ISP, you can use the traffic widget to monitor your bandwidth usage.

Traffic is a simple little widget that pulls bandwith usage stats from your ISP's 'my-internet' page to show the upload and download bandwidth consumed as well as how close you are to reaching the ISP's bandwith quota.

What ISP do I use?
Here's a listing each location and it's ISP, with the quota given in parenthesis, that the Traffic widget is known to work at:

UIUC Flexabit
University Dorms (2000) Hendrick House (750)
University Wireless (2000) Roland Realty Apartments (?)

If you know of another location the either uses one of these ISP's or a new ISP that uses a 'my-internet' stats page, Let us know.
