Worried You're Going To Go Over Your BendBroadband Bandwidth Usage?

July is the first month that BendBroadband is capping your Internet bandwidth at 100gb/month and will be billing for overages (read up on the whole mess that ensued after the announcement here). Since I don't think the usage-based bills have been sent out quite yet, there hasn't been any reaction quite yet (don't think there will be much of one since they did raise their cap). But if you're concerned about going over, and want to make sure you don't, a local programmer has created a monitoring PHP script that will e-mail you your usage numbers whenever the script runs. You can read up on bbbUM here.

I really have an urge to make this a public service where people can submit their user/pass, it'd be encrypted and can then email them their usage on a daily basis, but I really don't have that kind of free time on my hands.
