New website on the way

A new website is under development and I can't wait to show you. For now, my outdated portfolio website (which was recovered from previous backups) will be served.

This portfolio website will be preserved and will be browsable on the new site.

Start Meter

The Start Usage Meter has been moved and is now distributed on the Mac App Store. Please replace your copy with the version from the Mac App Store.

I developed a Mac application (Cocoa) that works with Starts website and API to retrieve usage information for a users internet account. The app runs in the background and hits Starts servers every hour to update usage information. It sits pretty up in the menu bar at the top of your screen and uses very little resources. It provides access to download/upload/total information. It was inspired by CapSavvy.

Requires OS X 10.7 or later (I am working on bringing support to Snow Leopard)

- Sits up in the menu bar at the top of the screen
- Updates every hour
- Allows detailed viewing of usage in the detailed statistics screen
- Works away from home (don’t need to be on your Start network)

Please do not hesitate to contact me to request new features. I still consider this a beta product. As always- the official Start website should always be the official meter.
