After some more revision, I believe this new copy may be a keeper... (I decided to call it v1.0 now as it feels stable).

Please try to prove me wrong - happy to work any bugs out (but should now work with all llu connections - and possibly non-llu)

Look good, but could you remove always on top.

Shouldn't the update have a new version number like 1.0.1?  Any chance of seeing the source code to check to see there is any account scraping code.  It seems like quite a big program for what it does, what is it written in?

Meh, who needs accurate version numbers Smile! (lol)

All that is important is that the tool is useful - and I would agree with you, the filesize is a tad large.

It is written with a scripting program called AutoHotKey (previously known as AutoIt), and mainly uses existing windows libraries.

It scrapes the Orcon Usage from the homepage.

Anyone have any ideas on features to add to it?

I was thinking of adding a network traffic monitior (i.e show ethernet current data rate).
Maybe also a warning when reaching a particular percentile of your data allocation, or could take it a step further and make it shutdown a selected application (or process) when approaching the cap or exeeding it? (Would anyone find this useful?)
Also more screenshots would be awesome, I want to make 100% sure it is working for everyone.

An idea... how about a configurable graph so I can set my own bandwidth limit as my plan keeps going charging me more.

Nice work!

After you get it working 100%, I will talk to the marketing guys about writing a blog about it for the website.

Slayer123, what plan do you have.
Any chance you can goto orcon.net.nz and take a screenshot of what the plan is showing as on the front page?
