After running PPS (LLR) for a few days I went back to PSP (LLR) on a couple of machines. The initial time estimates came in at over 28 days. That should have been about 5 days on my machines.

Now I know it will adjust by itself so I'm not personally at all concerned, but that's so far off the mark the admins may want to take a look at either PPS and/or PSP. One or the other, or perhaps both, seem to need a bit of adjustment.

I guess the only real worry is that this may scare off more casual crunchers. Plus, well, it really just isn't right.

Just my 2c.

Regards!

You can wait and crunch many units to lower the DCF-value or you reset it to 1.
