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 Vanagon.com 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!
