First of all thanks for all the elaborate explanations. They are all  
greatly appreciated!

Sorry. I meant the time it takes to compute the DSP.

What i was thinking about is the information in each block, ie the  
samples in each block are forgotten about when the computation/DSP of  
that block is done. I'm guessing this, since some object, i guess  
again, depends on the block size, that is the samples in the block.  
For example if one wants to compute some mean value. - Does the block  
size then become the 'window' size, where window is used as the  
theoretical term in DSP?
