Please consider adding a function that controls when, how long, and how often BOINC will dial-up.

For example:
* Dial only b/w the Hours A:BC & X:YZ
* Discount after X minutes
* Dial no more than Y times per day

The reasons:
* Shared Lines (Fax & Computer)
* Overage charges of a Limited ISP Account
