Topic 188281

Hi,

Im new with my machine here. I use ADSL with alimited amount of MB per month. My question is: could someone tell me how many MB I should calculate for a month (or a week/a day) when running E&H? If I go out of my limit I have to pay additional cost for each MB...

Thx for your reply.

You shouldn't get more than a few data files (12 MB/each) per month.
The uploads associated with each WU that you do is on the average around 1 MB.
You might do as much as 1 or 2 WU/day, depending upon how idle your machine is and whether or not you leave it on all the time.

OK, thx for your quick help. That will answer my question, it seems to be not much a month compared with a 3000 MB limit I have ;-)
Last question (today): Is there any "common" explanation in _german_ language for the "Gravitational waves" available? Who knows some links?
