Okey, at current speed it would be nearly 1200 years to complete, but...

Moore's law
More than 25 years ago, when Intel was developing the first microprocessor,
company cofounder Gordon Moore predicted that the number of transistors on a
microprocessor (and computing power) would double approximately every 18
months. To date, Moore's law has proven remarkably accurate.


According to this law and taking into consideration constantly increasing
number of project members and their computers - project RC5-72 will be
complete approximately in 20 years.
