Speaking only for myself, and not for anybody at all, I wouldn't be terribly
surprised if the 24 hour experiment goes smoothly to see it followed up
by a week-long trial round the next time.

If it doesn't go well, I imagine there will be much data analysis, figuring
out what needs to be fixed, and a "24 hour trial, take 2" once a sufficient
level of fixage has occurred.
