I do not agree that we should mute it all the way to > 0.05% as I prefer a ballpark figure over nothing, but instead of arguing > I made it a john.conf option :-) BTW like you say it would be nice to have a full rewrite of the ETA code (we could in fact actually write eg. "4,000,000 years", that would be very educational) but that would need more thought and a change in all modes files (this was just in status.c). A compromise could be to actually use a much higher precision than 0.01% behind the scenes, I think that would be an easy fix but there are some caveats. It's good enough for me as-is so I'm probably done with it. magnum
