Update: Make sure you get the latest version of the widget!
Another update to the TPG Usage Widget for Mac OS X.
This fixes a pretty major bug with the calculation of red and yellow sections on the indicators; I assumed that everyone’s TPG billing cycles were monthly, like mine so was calculating usage to the end of the current month, rather than looking at the actual expiry date. This caused some pretty confusing indicators showing usage in the red when they should have been in the green.
This should be fixed now, but since I’ve only tested this for my account, please let me know if you notice any weirdness.
Version 1.4 changes:
- Fixed bug in calculating “target usage” – not everyone has a billing cycle that coincides with the end of the month!
- Now displays < 1 day as “today” (I saw 0, and maybe a negative on my installation last month)
- Added option to click on the expiry date (or days) and change mode. Note that once this option is set, the widget will not override it (unless the mac is restarted or the widget is reinstalled)
Download TPG Usage Widget (version 1.4, 96kb)
Confused? Maybe this fineprint from Apple will help: “Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger is required. If you’re using Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, Show Dashboard, click the Plus sign to display the Widget Bar and click the widget’s icon in the Widget Bar to open it. If you’re using a browser other than Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, unarchive it and place it in /Library/Widgets/ in your home folder. Show Dashboard, click the Plus sign to display the Widget Bar and click the widget’s icon in the Widget Bar to open it.”
No? Didn’t think so. Just leave a comment and I’ll help you out
