That's a cool app! Especially useful for people with limited bandwidth. Like me. I like the feature that turns it off after so long.

My recording computer is always off line. It has the capacity to go online, but I never use it. Now that I think about it, maybe I will sometimes. It would be less work than getting something all done and then having to transfer to another computer before uploading. I do a lot of running back and forth with memory sticks. I could put this app on the recording computer so I make sure not to forget to turn the internet back off.

My main computer has a button, so it's easy to turn internet on and off. Although, again, if I forget, it'll sit there on for hours. And, you know, idle computers sit and chit chat with the internet, so they use up bandwidth. I have no idea what they talk about.
