The grand plan is to stick it on a RaspberryPi or similar and recess the an LCD into a blackboard in the kitchen so that everyone in the flat can see what the data usage is currently at, and other things such as how much power is been used from powershop etc..
Back to the problem:
There is a couple of old usage meters that used to connect to telstra and scrap the data, and have accessible code so I could see how they were collecting the data.
however neither of these still work with telstra's latest usage meter, (at least from my testing). I've tried tinkering with the code to see if I could get it to work with the "telstracabletraffic" script, but had no luck..
Does anyone have any tips on how I could scrape the usage info, officially/unofficially?
Ideally if I could get access to the CSV file that is available, I can graph and display the usage pretty easily.
