Cool Download usage counter (meter) - Ubuntu 11.04

Hi Guys,

As stated in previous posts I've not long come back to linux, I was wondering if anyone can suggest a good lightweight download usage meter to help track how much of my monthly allowance I have used etc.

Under windows I was using one that logged into the Bigpond site and would display usage, how much was left and how many days were left till the end of the billing period.

I've done some searching but so far can't find anything similar for linux.

Downloaded a firefox add on called Netusage from this site does everything I want.
If anyone else wants to try it just download, firefox should recognise it as an add on, let firefox install it then restart firefox, configure the 'Netusage' item preferences for your ISP and away you go.
