204+ days?? Deadline of 1 October?? Please tell me this is because it's the first WU I've received! WU is 1253201549_1846_1. Computer is Phenom 9150 quad-core running Vista Ultimate 64. Can someone give me a more realistic estimate of time to completion presuming it runs 24/7 at 80% CPU (guestimate on percent due to using my computer).

edit: include OS

The time is due to a problem with the way BOINC works out estimations etc - its a bit of a moving target trying to hit the mark across all BOINC projects. It will correct itself over time - circa 4/5/6 days of 24x7 as it "learns " from completed WUs, you will find the time to completion will get shorter and shorter, until it hits the realistic one.

As a comparitor I have a Phenom2 quad running (3.2Ghz, 8Gb RAM Vista64), yet to complete a new cpu WU, but it should go through at around 7.5 hours on current running. There are what appear to be "small ones" in large numbers at present being downloaded, they are the last of the older smaller WU for the CPU they should get through on mine at around 14-16 mins.

The new WUs are around circa 32 times the size of the old ones.
