I am running a program in STATA where I have a foreach loop inside of another foreach loop.  This generates all pairwise interactions of 2 sets of about 200 dummy variables each.  The number of observations is about 500,000.  I am running this remotely on a UNIX server with 16GB of RAM (I have requested 10GB for this job).  Do you have any idea how long this will run?  I can tell you that it has already run for about 18 hours and isn't done yet.  This doesn't bode well since this is just for year 1850 and I am running it for 1850, 1860, ..., 1930.
