Monitor Internet Usage

Internet Meter

Simple Internet Meter is my new bandwidth monitor. After my program CS Fire Monitor came out years ago I had many requests for added features. Many of those features where not possible to add using the Windows API. Such as seeing what is internet traffic and what is local network traffic. The only way to accomplish this is to look at the packet data. So I made this program using WinPcap and PacketX.dll.

As many of the users know from my other work I am a performance nut. I try to have my programs run fast and clean all the while taking as little out of the system as possible. I put extra effort into Simple Internet Meter to make sure it does its job without affecting the system in anyway. The program will auto clean its used memory any time the memory usage goes above 10 mb. The program is designed to run 24/7.

A great feature I included was the ability for other programs to read the current data from the program. Such as a screen saver. I wrote a screen saver and is included with the program. I included the source code for the screen saver (VB 6) so other programmers can see how to work with Simple Internet Meter. The reason I added this was so other programmers can make their own programs read from it. You may ask besides a screen saver what other program would need this info? Well some new keyboards are coming out with LCD screens and such so one good example is a program to display the stats to that LCD screen. If you have written a program to work with Simple Internet Meter please contact me and let me know, I will be more than happy to post a link as along as the program is safe to use.

Features Of Simple Internet Meter.

There are many features I have included in the program. Many of them by user request. To get a good run through of the features make sure to watch the video linked on this page to see what it can do.
Many screenshots and pictures of the program are located in the help file as well.
Below is a list of just some of the features.

* Monitor Internet Traffic.
* Monitor Local Network Traffic.
* Monitor a range of ports.
* Set and keep track of a Bandwidth Quota, This is a perfect tool for people on a capped limit from their ISP.

Ufone Ghanta Package

Ufone Ghanta Offer

Ufone has taken a lead in the Ghanta offer race by offering Super Ghanta package. This one is unique offer as it comes with not only an increase in duration to the Ufone’s traditional ghanta package but also being offered off-net i.e. to any PTCL landlines and Vfone numbers across the country.

The Super Ghanta offer is launched with a very sarcastically funny ad. Before we take a look at that, lets follow the Ghanta offer race.

Ufone has been offering the Ghanta offer @Rs. 5.99/hour from 9am to 5pm with daily subscription charges of Rs. 3.99/day.

Earlier this month, Mobilink Jazz came up with their Ghanta offer @Rs. 3.99/hour from 9am to 5pm with daily subscription charges of Rs. 5.99/day.

An interesting thing to notice here is that Mobilink adopted the Ufone daily charges as their hourly rate and hourly rate as daily charges.

With the start of Ramzan, the Mobilink Jazz Ghanta offer was revised with an increase in time window. Ramzan Ghanta offer comes @Rs. 3.99/hour from 9am to 7pm with daily subscription charges of Rs. 5.99/day.

And now comes the Ufone Super Ghanta offer @Rs. 3.50/hour from 4am to 5pm with daily subscription charges of Rs. 5.99/day.

The Ufone Super Ghanta offer wins over the Mobilink Jazz Ramzan Ghanta offer in not only the hourly rate and time window but like I said earlier extending it to include calls to landlines and Vfone numbers.

The price war between operators have taken a new form. Now they just not announce thier packages but also denounce others. This Ufone Super Ghanta Jadoogar ad says it all.

Secret Code of Success

Secret Code of Success
7 Hidden Steps to More Wealth and Happiness

Americans spend more than $11 billion a year on self-help products—everything from books to diet pills to career coaches to seminars. So why—with all this time, money, and energy being spent—are so few people living the life they really want? Why are millions of smart, talented, motivated people still going through life with one foot on the brake? Here's the real Secret: You don't need any more how-to-succeed information to reach your full potential. The problem isn't lack of motivation or lack of information. The real problem is that most people focus on the "how-to" aspects of success taught by traditional self-help programs, without coming to terms with what productivity expert Noah St. John calls your "head trash"—the subconscious, emotional roadblocks that prevent people from acting on their real hopes, dreams, and ambitions. In this groundbreaking book, based on work with thousands of clients around the world, Noah St. John has created a remarkable, step-by-step approach that helps you achieve long-term happiness, success, and wealth. In The Secret Code of Success, you will learn how to: Eliminate the causes of self-sabotage and fear of success Allow yourself to make more money Remove stress while dramatically increasing personal productivity Improve relationships with coworkers, family, and friends Experience enhanced feelings of happiness, connection, and love The Secret Code of Successshows that, when it comes to success, the conscious mind is exactly the wrong place to start. It's only when we first conquer the self-sabotage of our subconscious (which accounts for 90 percent of our behavior) that we can truly begin to enjoy a life filled with success. This insight is at the core of The Secret Code of Success and leads to Noah's revolutionary 7-step method for eliminating these psychological obstacles. True financial freedom and personal success is possible at last! The Secret Code of Success shows you how to get your foot off the brake and start living the life you deserve.

Internet Manager Internet

The 10 Second Internet Manager by Mark Breier
Remember the old joke "Instant gratification isn't fast enough"? That was something like the reaction Mark Breier had when he picked up a copy of The One Minute Manager, a book he'd once found profound. Now Breier, formerly CEO of and marketing vice president at, found that he was annoyed by the book's leisurely pace. So he sat down to write the Y2K version of one-minute managing, which essentially shows modern executives how to do the job in one-sixth the time.

Breier tells two stories in Internet Manager. First is how he became one after a career in the very-slow-moving world of food marketing, where he was considered lightning-quick for developing new marshmallow packaging in just six months. His year at showed him anything was possible if you worked hard and fast enough. And at, which as CEO, Breier helped to take public, he put together everything he learned to run a company. The second story is how anyone can more efficiently manage themselves and their employees. Some of the advice on financing toward the end of the book is strictly high-level stuff, but in between there's a lot of information that every busy employee can use........
