I estimate that each time we calculate the estimate, it will get smaller. ;-)
Perhaps we should rewrite the clients to continuously recalculate the
time to completion?
I would guess a more reasonable estimate would try to extrapolate our
progress on a logarithmic scale. The real trick, then, is finding the
slope of the line we're on, approximately.
Any takers out there? I think someone has a graph of this sort online
already.... or at least did during DES-II.
