Default Time is shrinking; the eons are closing

The record solution time feature has only been around a short while. My prediction is that very soon there will be few cryptograms that have a record solution time of over 35 seconds. The cryptogram I solved in 10 seconds has an economy of characters. There are only 11 different letters in "There is nothing certain, but the uncertain." Each one of the crypts we solve can have no more than 26 characters, so it's my belief that soon there will be very few puzzles left that won't have record solution times under 35 seconds.
