I just had to pass this along from another car list I'm on: 


"Many years ago I learned to accurately estimate the duration of a project

the real world: you simply come up with a measure of how long it should

reasonably take, double that and go to the next unit of time.

Example: Replacing a hose should take three minutes. 3 x 2 = 6 hours.


Rebuilding an engine should take two days. Therefore, it will take four



It's unbelievably accurate."


---Jim Felder, from the mail list.


Yes, it is, but it is still optimistic.  I'm starting to think I may have to
go up to astronomical time units!
