Barry,

The reported backlog is simply the time between upload of the last
processed file and the reporting epoch.  It is a backward looking
statistic and not predictive.

If you want predictive, look at the number of QSOs in the queue
- which continues to increase - and apply an value for processing
rate derived from the QSOs/time watching the home page or calculated
based on processing time for some of the uploads in "your activity"
from your own account.

I use a factor of 360 QSOs/minute which makes the predictive delay
for new uploads about 25,000 minutes or 17 days, 6 hours.

73,

I'm looking at the lotw stats at http://www.arrl.org/logbook-queue-status

Note that the number of QSOs to be processed dropped by ~28000 and the
data to be processed dropped by about 10 Meg.  The backlog increased by
44 minutes.  Hmm...
