  1. Introduce Yourself

    Hi, cinematicme here, hopefully I can contribute to the community. I'm an AV Technician and Editor, using Adobe/Apple/AVID tools, and pretty knowledgable on anything mac or iOS.
  2. Sorry if this is in the wrong place, it's my first post. I was wondering if there is a possible way to make a geeklet able to scrape my monthly aggregate data meter, since Comcast has a 250GB cap I'd like to avoid going over it. (Really close this month) According the the FAQ Comcast has about its bandwith cap, only 1% of users go over 250GB and that general users use roughly 4-6GB a month. I call bull on that one, especially in this day and age. Even netflix uses roughly 0.7GB per hour of video, over 1GB if its in HD, not to mention data syncing services and steaming youtube/vimeo/soundcloud then theres misc file downloads, program trials, etc etc But yeah I only have 7GB left til i hit my cap haha. There is a Ruby script for it http://wonko.com/post/ruby-script-to-displ...cast-data-usage #!/usr/bin/env ruby require 'rubygems' require 'mechanize' URL_LOGIN = 'https://login.comcast.net/login?continue=https://login.comcast.net/account' URL_USERS = 'https://customer.comcast.com/Secure/Users.aspx' abort "Usage: #{$0} <username> <password>" unless ARGV.length == 2 agent = Mechanize.new agent.follow_meta_refresh = true agent.redirect_ok = true agent.user_agent = 'Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100115 Firefox/3.6' login_page = agent.get(URL_LOGIN) login_form = login_page.form_with(:name => 'signin') login_form.user = ARGV[0] login_form.passwd = ARGV[1] redirect_page = agent.submit(login_form) redirect_form = redirect_page.form_with(:name => 'redir') abort 'Error: Login failed' unless redirect_form account_page = agent.submit(redirect_form, redirect_form.buttons.first) users_page = agent.get(URL_USERS) usage_text = users_page.search("div[@class='usage-graph-legend']").first.content puts usage_text.strip Here is the script however I think there's more that needs to be done for that to show up, seeing as the script shows no output through geektool (in text)
