I have created a tool that sniffs traffic, named gpackcount.
It's quite basic, but I find it useful.

Some nice pics and an explaining text:

Anyone interested in creating a package for Freesco?
I am willing to create the binary, but if someone volunteers to create the install-script et al. by the book, that would be greatly appreciated.

The original article where I post the first announcement, <a href='' target='_blank'>here</a>.

Good job on the binary, but this is actually quite a simple package, since it only installs one binary and some libs. It doesn't need an rc_ startup script or anything.
So why don't go the extra mile and create the package yourself?

<a href='' target='_blank'>This</a> wiki article explains howto create an add-on package. Because your package doesn't need a startup/shutdown script you can remove the rc directory completely.
You'll find that Lewis' package script is really very very good and performs a lot of the tedious tasks involved in package creation.

I'm willing to beta test your package and give comments howto improve (if needed).

What do you think?
