Post BigPond Usage Meter
June 29th, 2012, 2:34 pm
Here is shot of my first skin, which incorporates a BigPond Usage Meter. Just started using Rainmeter today, so really looking forward to seeing what's out there, and jazzing up the theme a bit.

The skin is now available for folks to use, please use this forum for any questions or issues relating to the skin. You can download the skin and other files you might need from the following location:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/bigpond/

Thanks to jsmorley for the help through the forums.

Looks really useful; I'm not with BigPond but I know how much a pain having to watch the bandwidth limit every month is.

Very Good, It was always a pita to login just to check my usage, this just made my life a whole lot easier. Thank you


This is my first day using Rainmeter, I only wish that I had found it earlier. Bigpond works great, I would like to see, button for refresh and maybe an option to change the color/s from windows color picker.

Thanks for the feedback, I will be doing some more work on the bars as this was my first skin. The refresh happens once every 15 minutes and on load. So hopefully that is sufficient. You can also right click and do a Refresh Skin which will trigger the collection script to run.

And yeah... the login part was a tough one.

Hi. Got your link here : http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-re ... &p=38#r758 and this : http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-re ... ?t=1966296 is why I was looking for something to monitor BP usage.

Or Maybe I should start with 'My Name is ... And I am a noob' :)

I followed the instructions here : http://sourceforge.net/projects/bigpond/files/ The TXT file. And somehow I got to enter my User, Password, Quota and Reset Day but the usage meter didn't setup and I haven't a clue how to proceed, or what went wrong.

I can follow directions if you have any. I'd like to get it going, such a potential little program.

Regards. M

OK. Had another look and reran BigPondSetup via Command Prompt (as before), plus this time I also ran BigPondUsage.vbs via Command Prompt and allowed it to connect and I've got a usage meter.

I'll get back if there's anything else.

3hrs later and the meter hasn't changed. What has happened is for every 15 (or so) minutes there was a copy of 'BigPondUsage.vbs' open in Notepad. I have no idea what this means.

It means you've set Notepad as the default application for .vbs files. It should be Windows Scripting Host. You should be able to right click the BigPondUsage.vbs file and choose Open With... then Choose Program... and select Windows Scripting Host. Make sure to check the Default box too.

The easiest way to check the association is correct is to double click the BigPondUsage.vbs file, it should create a BigPond-calculations.txt in the same folder.

It seems I don't have Windows Scripting Host installed and, after searching the web, where I think I should find it I don't : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/scri ... 72288.aspx And I've been round and round. Unless it's called something else? Got a link for the download?
