Well that will take some time. Why do you think that might have an effect?
This run is not parallel, so that answers your shuffling/sorting question.
I just realized that I previously misread the time estimate because I
didn't look at the year - 2006. That makes the change seem much more
reasonable, from 370 to 480 days. This squares with the rate that I
estimated from md.log of 192 ps/day.
