It usually take several steps before it can give you the correct ETA.

just downloaded and started folding. i don't want to name myself on http://www.overclock.net/overclock-n...heck-here.html until my name appears here http://vspx27.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/m...&teamnum=37726

how long does this take??

Thread Starter 
It depends on your system specs and the exact WU you were assigned. Generally, most WUs are done within two days on reasonably good systems. There are a lot of smaller WUs being assigned these days that take half a day or less. Once your WU is submitted, your name should appear on Stanford's site within about an hour.

Thanks for doing things in the proper order. It makes update the database a whole lot easier.

At this time, the folding application is single threaded, so you'll need to run one instance of the software per CPU core to push things to the max.
