Bandwidth Hog

Even though I've heard no complaints, I imagine my ISP hates me. This household is probably using more bandwidth at the moment than the rest of the houses on this road combined! Pushing my 6Mbps connection to its limits... surprised there hasn't been a "meltdown" yet. List of things running that I'm aware of...

1. Leo Laporte's video stream at
2. KFI's radio station player at
3. Trillian Astra instant messenger
4. Firefox browser
5. Thunderbird email client
6. streaming applet
7. 5 webcams uploading a still image every 20 seconds
8. Desktop capture software uploading an image every 30 seconds
9. The son is using one of his 2 game systems online
10. He probably has something running on his laptop also
