Would it be incredibly difficult to get BOINC to recalculate time remaining at say, 5% or 20% completion? I have a wus task that is 50% complete after running for just under 10 days yet is showing 43 days to completion. I strongly suspect that the total will come in around 20 days rather than 10+43 or the 80 days of the initial estimate.

I also know about the problems with BOINC development at the moment so am not expecting anything soon, rather just throwing the idea out there!

Hi Dave

If this is Windows on Wine, then it's not a BOINC problem.
The only 2 reliable figures in this case are the Progress and Elapsed columns.

You could try an app_config.xml file with fraction_done_exact tag. See more here
