I requested 2 days WU's (enough for the weekend, I thought).
Due to SRBase's poor estimates, I got enough WU's for a whole week.
unfortunately, they time out after 4 days, so the server wastes effort both in sending the extra 3 days' data and in cancelling them.
Results are also delayed.
After so many years, SRBase ought to be better at estimating.

The estimation runtime is a BOINC server issue while the runtime is changing in every batch.
