Out of curiosity I made a plot of the number of posts to D newsgroups over 
time. It's more dynamic than I thought:

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.

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.

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.
