I've long delayed getting a printer, but finally have a few things that I want to print queued up again, and it's getting to be too much of a hassle with printing them at friends' places, etc. There even is a printer here in the house, but it's 3 floors up, often out of paper, or disconnected, or needs to have its network connection coaxed into cooperation, and its toner isn't looking so hot anyhow.

No, I'm not going to even try to install that piece of crap. It's a shame that after so many years the OpenJDK is still so useless. In this state of affairs, for me Java is dead and buried. In all respects.
That's why people keeps their diamonds in safe-deposit boxes, you fool.

but I haven't yet finished fine tuning my new and shiny Kubuntu installation.
I'm very happy using Mikrotik (mikrotik.com) products. You can buy a ~49$ license and install their software -RouterOS, a Linux derivative- on an old PC. You can also get one of their hardware products (routerboard.com), excellent choice if you care about power consumption. I highly recommend the RB750G wich is a small SOHO router in a nice plastic case. With RouterOS you can do a whole lot of interesting things, monitoring bandwidth usage is just one of these things.
the Openwall website groans and moans imploring for a facelift. it's so poignant..

A statically linked app written in C++, with Trolltech's Qt4.4 + SQLite3 support will do the trick. If the statically linked binary results too big, just shrink it with UPX, or install the dynamically linked dlls with the app.
