Back when I was writing computer programs for a living I used to tell new programmers to come up with their best estimate of how long a project
would take then double it and change to the next unit of time. That meant that a two hour project
would take four days and a one week project would take two months. I was (mostly) joking but it was often disturbingly accurate.
