How I estimate time needed:
Does it take a week?
Does it take 3 days?
Does it take a day?
Does it take 4 hours?

Take the result, and make it 1.5 times said result

    Or say result*2 and be finished in result*1.5 to appeal as a very fast dev to the client/boss/sales person etc.

    I'm jealous of the people posting about "days" or even "weeks" allocation. In my previous hell, the maximum is 38 hours and you have to say it as hours, always. And if you need more time than that, you'll have to add another estimate AND THEN once you're actually done with the work, you have to adjust the estimation so it fits the actual hours. DA FAKKKKK! Brain hemorrhage every day.
