WhatPulse 2.0.2
Using the feedback we got after 2.0.1, we've been working on quite a few things of improvement. I am posting this 2.0.2 version only here (not on the main website) see get some feedback from people who have run into issues on the change-log below. If you have indeed run into one of these issues, please try to upgrade to 2.0.2 (just exit the client and install 2.0.2 over your existing 2.0.1) and provide us with feedback. Thanks!

Sadly, after the fix, the network device is listed now, but traffic over the interface still does not count.
I've only tested this on my notebook yet. The WLAN adapter is listed too and it's traffic counts. (I've tested it with WLAN disabled to check if LAN counts)
Just installed the new version and the network tracking has definitely improved. However, there are still times where my torrent is uploading @ 1.5mb/s yet WhatPulse says I'm uploading @ half that rate.

It's just far less random and a bit more accurate than last version which is nice to see.
crashing has increased since update. its on for no more then a minute and it stops responding and crashes. i start it back up again it crashes less then a minute later. ive done this multiple times, now im uninstalling then reinstalling.

Its crashing when i try to pulse. Its Repeatable bug for me.

DirectX/Directinput support would be nice ...

would that solve the issue of it not counting keys/clicks when in a game? If so, i completely agree.
Nice update. however, in my About tab, my Total Download/Upload/Uptime are all Unknown. Thanks

EDIT: Whoops! sorry. I guess it filled out those details upon pulse

If it is listed, it will fire up a thread to capture the traffic. You can find the reason for it's failure in the console log, so please run it via console.
