From what I read here, it seems like most don't realize there is an excellent tool to keep detailed track of when your data was used (the data Exede says you have used) Satellite Restriction Tracker by Reality Ripple. It's a shame you can't add a picture here, but here is a link to the kind of detailed record of what you used when, that you can get. http://realityripple.com/Software/Applications/Satellite_Restriction_Tracker/#grid_history. The getting place is http://realityripple.com/Software/Applications/Satellite_Restriction_Tracker/#.UUnRJlHQS2s and it's free to use, but if you kick in $15 bucks a year to him, his system collects your data for you and is keeping track of your data even when your not, as well as the data collection is quicker and uses less bytes.

I've been using this every since I've had Exede and we can't do without it. It sets down in your tray and if you hover your mouse over it, you can see exactly how much Exede says you have used. Right now mine says 7.9 GB of 15 GB (52.67%) and you can pull your usage up on a grid or a graph.

One additional PSA regarding data usage for those using Firefox:

It appears that the latest update (34.0.5) broke some AdBlock Plus and/or Flashblock functionality but updates for both are available and restore that functionality - I didn't bother to isolate whther it was one or the other, just installed the latest updates to those add-ons.

Really great of you to share this and it looks like a great tool but the instructions are too obtuse for me to follow. I have no idea if I have those things on my computer or which button to push.

Right click it and hit Open and it'll let you run the program. It just doesn't like it because it's not signed by Apple.

Andrew,

Welcome aboard, I recognize that face (or at least it appears to be you). Were your upload problems similarly solved with the SLC node fix after UT_2.2.3.0.13? Just curious as to whether it was specific to the SLC Accelenet server or multiple Accelenet servers.

As far as I can tell, yeah, all my packet corruption issues went away at the same time as everyone else's.

Any chance there is an iOS app variant?

I'm afraid it's not likely. Apple wants a hundred bucks a year if you want to write for iOS and another hundred a year if you want to write for OS X. OS X at least lets you get around this restriction by right-clicking the program and hitting "Open" the first time you run it. But I don't want to support a system that works like that and I don't want to give money to Apple when I disagree with everything about them.
If someone else who already has an Apple developer ID and a recent copy of Xamarin Studio wants to take my SRTLib.dll and source code and make one themselves, though, they're very welcome to.
