i don't know about blocks WRT RC5... the numbers given are Mkeys/sec in which i 
understand the M to mean Mega which then means million... so, using the original 
3.600Mkeys/sec number given by another poster, that would appear to be 3.6 
million keys per second... with the math returning my number above, you are 
looking at 311040 million keys a day...
