[RC5] RC5 roughly doubling at this point?

Hey,

Today's RC5 stats reaching 0.199% complete gave me a great idea.
Search old messages for percent completes at different times
throughout the project and try and guess when RC5 will end from
that.

One old message had 0.060% complete in November 2003.
One old message had 0.068% complete in January 2004.
Today's stats (March 2005) had 0.199% complete.

I rounded up 0.068% to 0.070% and 0.199% to 0.200% and set up:

0.01% increase / 2 months = 0.13% / 26 months.
Except that it has been about 14 months since January 2004.

I'm saying that the time in months between every 0.01% percent
increase seems to be decreasing by roughly less than half.
Besides the fact that the result was 26 months and not 28
months, I also say roughly less than because I frequently
rounded up.

I assume this means that RC5 is roughly doubling at this point?
