Computer Forums Tell me if my conversion is right

So I thought about it for a bit and decided to ping google to keep the connection active. I used the following command. ping www.google.com -n 13,824,000 This will keep the connection active and ping google 13,824,000 times before the program stops. I don't really know how I got that number re adding my math but that should ensure it pings all day without stopping. Now I'm being overally conservative and will say google gets off 5, 32 byte strands per second on my connection. So my figures were 60 seconds equal 300 pings per minute or 9600 bytes per minute. Taking that to the hour I got 18,000 pings per hour or 648,000 bytes per hour. And finally 24 hours at 1,080,000 pings or 34,560,000 bytes per 24 hours. Now for the conversion 34,560,000 bytes by my calculations would equal 32.95MB per day right? I just want to make sure I'm not forgetting to add something somewhere. The only reason I ask is I'm just curious how much of my cap I'm wasting by keeping it connected constantly. Edit everytime I do this I get a different number here. 5 (300) = 1,500 per minute (60) = 90000 per hour (24) = 2160000 per day 2160000 (32) 69100000 bytes per day or 65.9MB per day. Grr I'm giving myself a migraine now. __________________ __________________

Mine will go out randomly, for about 20 minutes it wont work. My uncle has the same problems with his EVDO. I think the problem is that there are too many new users in Chicago area though. __________________ “Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.” - Dr. Suess

I guess there is a new tower going up thats a little bit closer so it may help. I lost the signal a little bit ago and went on auto for a while. It found Rev-A a bit ago and was flying. I got the fastest speeds I've ever gotten from my house. Normally that test center is only 100 miles away and now its saying its 200 miles away so I wonder if I hit a different tower. My area is freaking weird sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't lol. Now I'm back on national access. Man I love it. I know the speed is there its just figuring out how to sustain it. __________________

Sometimes I can get 1200 down, but usually about 800 down and 200-500 up. __________________ __________________ “Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.” - Dr. Suess
