    what language and were to start

    Simple question really, i was just wondering if it was possible to make an app that will alert me when i'm close to reaching my monthly download limit.?.
    And if so what would be the best language to code it in. and where would i need to start, like reading material.
    I have tried googling but to no avail have come up empty handed.

    I am using winXP and the modem is a cable modem, motorola surfboard.

    Can you give me more detail on what you mean by "monthly download limit"? does ur ISP limit you to a certain amount of uploads/downloads each month?

    Yes the Internet Provider is letting me download 12Gb a Month, and unlimited uploading.
    And if i exceed this then i get charged $1.50perMb
    and there is no place for me to check my usage. And so i'm just getting confused using a calculator to add up everything and doing guess work to work out my usage.

    so i thought if i could make some kind of app that could automatically add up my usage then it would be a little easier for me to keep an eye on it.

    And it will certainly save me some time in writing the code myself
    anyhow thank you once again.
