BigPond Usage Meter

Hey Guys,

 

Not sure if anyone is interested but I've written a simple usage meter in PHP/Curl to get usage. You can test it out here. If it's not working it could be because MyAccount is down (it uses curl to scrape the page).

 

It doesn't store any usernames / passwords (posts straight to the BigPond site), so there shouldn't be any security issues. It was mainly for personal use but thought I would just put it out there.

Re: BigPond Usage Meter

Nice share, thanks.

 

I am currently using a Bigpond usage meter gadget, pictured here:

 

 

It uses Bigpond XML to parse the information, it only stores usernames and passwords locally (on your PC).

 

I like it because it shows me how much usage I have and how much usage I have per day, along with the other numbers that you can clearly see on the scren-shot.

 

You can download this Bigpond usage meter from DigitalDj's site.

 

For FireFox users, try Net Usage Item.

Ah nice. I don't generally use gadgets (have the service turned off). I normally use Net Usage Item but wasn't updated for Firefox 5 when it was released, hence why I wrote the script.

Re: BigPond Usage Meter

I cannot edit my original post. However I've since removed the script. Changes to the new usage meter means the script is broken.

 

I've got no plans to update it at this stage. However there is the awesome Telstra 24x7 app.
