When my computer began processing Astropulse work units BOINC displayed that they would be finished in about three hundred hours. Today I started SETI up again and the display was at eleven hundred hours for each! What exactly could have changed in my computer over a day to account for this, or is there something I need to tweak in the BOINC manager?

Your computer was off for a while. BOINC keeps track of what fraction of the time your computer is on.
