Me thinks one of two things happened 1. Boinc has a problem or 2. They set it high to keep those users that set the cache ridiculously high from downloading a bunch of WUWUs, thus slowing down the process.....

Someone noticed that a large number of WUs were off by a factor of 6 (I believe from the Alpha project), and then proceeded to multiply the estimates at all three of the projects by 6. I have also read, but cannot verify, that the estimates are back to normal.

Afraid they haven't been reverted back to normal yet.

I'll talk to the SAH dev's on Monday and find out if they plan on leaving things this way.
