Out of curiosity I made a plot of the number of posts to D newsgroups over time. It's more dynamic than I thought: http://home.comcast.net/~benhinkle/dnews.html I included a zip file of all the data used to make the plot and it has enough structure to allow for lots more analysis if anyone cares to poke around. -Ben ps the whole analysis was done in MATLAB - naturally :-)

It'd be interesting, also, to do analysis of each past year to determine, statistically, which parts of the year tend to be post "lulls" and which are the most active. If I'm reading the graph correctly, mid 2004 (summer 2004) had more posts than the spring or fall- not what I suspected. -John Demme On Sat, 20 Aug 2005 15:17:39 -0400, Ben Hinkle wrote:Out of curiosity I made a plot of the number of posts to D newsgroups over time.

That /is/ interesting. I think some of us had probably noted the lull pattern during autumn and winter, but I'd no idea it was so pronounced. Nice one, Ben.
