If you want an accurate answer on how long a project will take, ask two experts independently, and then multiply their answers

@uint8_t In the work, we multiply the estimate by 1,2 We always underestimate. I will propose your method.


@clacke @uint8_t @RileyStarlight One formula I've seen suggested is to take one's initial estimate, double it, and switch up to the next higher unit. Two days becomes four weeks, etc. I think it's fairly accurate.
