My preference is to do a 90 min boil, I dont start counting down until im at a rolling boil AND the hot break has passed. After that happens, I boil for 30 min then start my hop schedule. BUT I did try a 45 min boil the other day just for the sake of experimenting. I will probably not stray from my 90 min boils in the future though, I like caramelizing the wort a bit.

True...so my 90 minute boils are really 68. I'm doing one gallon batches as well. If I swirld the wort at all I can get a boil much faster but I've really got it down to a science on my time and volumes...allows me to do other things

Just tried a brew from the 45 min boil batch. Everything is fine and really tasty.
