    Welcome to our new Australian friend!! Crunching for TPU shows you have character and concern. Or, maybe just a computer. :shadedshu

    Anyways, I pretty sure I speak for the WHOLE team when I say, " Thanks!!"
    jgunning and Norton say thanks.

    No real issue imo- you download a small file> crunch it (takes x # number of hours)> upload it. Most files are fairly small (kB range) and the largest are 36-37MB

    Communication does not need to remain constant- you can do it once a day if you like ;)

    If you're worried about bandwidth I strongly suggest that you stay away from the Clean Energy Project - Phase 2. All of the other projects are small (no more than 500k upload or download per WU) but the Clean Energy WUs are a good 30-40mb upload, depending on the WU. Fine with an unlimited 100 megabit connection, but something to be aware of ;)
