    Sorry... we did have plans at one point, but were distracted by some other shiny things.

    And we love those but after such a long wait can the spotlight be put back on a usage widget?

    The big issue with doing usage widgets etc, is that they usually require screen scraping to work. Ie. they're inherently hacky by nature = not too much fun to do and they can break at any time, even if you've done a great job.

    If someone else wants to make a TPG usage meter, then I can probably knock up some nice graphics.

    Widget? No, a real app would be better (no offence Widget devs). Check out Ration development at www.blargsoft.com which is currently (still! read this Jedda) in private beta but moving along slowly but surely.

    Ah yes! I was trying to remember the name of the app (Ration) when I posted.

    Looks like a very promising app.

    Well after sending him a e-mail saying i'm keen to be a beta tester he replied back saying he would add me to the beta list and now it's out in beta nothing.

    I'm sent many e-mails and messages from MacTalk with no replies at all now :-(
