Update on my stats

After collecting over 45 hours of CPU time since I posted that I was going to start participating, my computer has calculated a little over 2% of the 1920 to 2080 climate models. The date displayed in the globe/map visualizations indicate that the model is in 1924. 45 hours times 50 (50x current time to get to end of model) yieds 2250 hours of computing time, not far off the initial prediction of the system of 2500 hours. Assuming I allow the system to run for about 7 hours a day my computer should complete the entire run in about 320 days, well ahead of the deadline of 2010.
