Heaven help you if you have this running in the background and you lock your desktop, when you go to retype your alphanumeric case-sensitive password you could very well be screwed...  This program is outright dangerous.

Other issues aside from those already noted below is it screws up mouse-controlled blocking of text.

I would really just remove this post altogether, or at least give a warning...

Just a waist of resources.

 Win 7 and MS Natural keyBoard 4000. I had to click on USB compatibility and  I used only the scroll lock light (for incoming). I also clicked on the run on startup. If I use Caps lock or Num Lock,Caps randomly appear in my typing and using the numlock basically turns off the keypad.

   Like the poster said, this is a fun utility to have ( for about 10 minutes or so).

I tried this addon, but found that it removed the usefulness of my numpad. It needs a hotkey, so that I can look at the triffic when I want to and then I can use the numpad too.

Unfortunately:

"the blinking isn't just cosmetic--it triggers the keys on and off. And while visualizing your bandwidth is fun and all, the last thing you want to do is start typing like a 14-year-old ScrIPTkiDDiE. Et cetera."

"Were only every download as fun as Network Lights."  <---- Can anyone describe to me what that sentence means?

lmao perhaps it could be rephrased like this: "If only every download were as fun as Network Lights"
