alex! thank you for your patience!

for my usecase this means:
i only get updates on monday-friday from 6:00-19:00 with a distance of max. 
10 hours (on one of these days)
but since i don't get any update for whole 3 days, i need a heartbeat of 
3*24*60*60 = 259200s

what would the drawback be if i use a heartbeat of one week?
the shortest time between updates is given by the step-size. the longest by the 
so since my updates can hold off for 3 days i use a heartbeat of 3 days!?

thanx again, thomas
