At first, I would like to thank you for creating AppVeyor. It's really nice and easy to use tool :)
Although I have a feeling that there is a problem with proper distribution of build machines in different projects. I will briefly describe how I came to this conclusion.
There is github remote A with appveyor set up. And there is a fork of remote A, which is called B. It's also connected to appveyor. All commits that I'm pushing to remote B are being run 5-10 times faster than on remote A... And I have no idea why. Both of the remotes are being run with free plan for open-source projects.

remote B build (4 configurations - 4 minutes 9 seconds)

remote A build (4 configurations - 1 hour 19 minutes, and one of the configurations failed)

and if you look in the history of both remotes it's more of the same. It looks like remote A is always using slower machine.

remote B builds history (1 configuration - ~1 minute)

remote A builds histroy (1 configuration - ~5 minute)

    Oh, I see :) Faster build B is running on Pro environment. When Pro trial on debris account is expired it will be running on Azure too, so you have equal performance on both A and B.
