Hi --

Sorry if this is redundant, stupid, etc. I've been running a client
for a while but I just joined this list.

Doing a naieve calculation based on rc5stats:

 ((1 - "keyspace exhausted") / "keyspace completed yesterday" ) / 365

yields something like 39 years.

I know: this does not take into account anticipated growth
in participants, client speed, etc. Do we have a better 
estimate for TTC?
