My mom, dad and I use the Internet at home on separate PC's. We always manage to go over our download limit. Is there anything out there that can use to log downloads on a monthly basis from 3 different PC's so I have an idea who the culprit is as far as exceeding bandwidth goes?

I'm looking for interesting visualizations of the internet: traffic patterns, affinity networks, what-have-you for a presentation on "Online Communications." Bonus points for movies, animation, and general coolness. [more inside]

I purchased a service to deliver traffic to one of my web sites. I know it reeks of scam, but I was curious. That's beside the point.
The terms of service don't state anything about the timeframe in which that traffic will be delivered. It's come in dribs and drabs (then entire purchase would take years, literally, to be delivered). And their stats do not match mine. Every single day shows them delivering more traffic than my whole site gets.
That said, I have two questions.
1) What is the legal basis for timely delivery of such a service, given that timeliness is not discussed in their terms at all. There ought to be a reasonable assumption of how long they have to perform their service, right?
2) Since legal action is not a reasonable option (it would cost more to get a refund than the refund is worth), what are some ideas for completely legal ways I could put a spotlight on this company's potentially fraudulent but certainly terrible service?

Internet Traffic Reports?
I know there's a site where Internet Traffic figures are posted, but is there a site that offers news about Internet "incidents." For example, right now, the Yahoo Group I belong to is either very impaired, or completely down. And, while it's somewhat pointless (sort of like schedules for the subway--hey it comes when it comes), I'd like to know WHY.

If I suddenly posted something on my website that I knew would get a ton of traffic, what would be the best way to, literally, capitalize on that traffic? If lightning struck, who would I call/partner with to make sure I got the maximum $$ possible out of all those eyeballs? Assume "selling out to the Man" would not be a concern, and further assume I would have very little time to arrange whatever the answer is. Also, assume the new higher traffic would be short-lived, a few weeks at most.
