Average Time Between Posts

My average time between posts was pretty easy to implement (it’s down at the bottom of the about section). I hope to share the code soon, once I make it a little more presentable. I’m not exactly sure I like using a true average. I thought about doing the median instead, but either way, it makes it look like I’ve posted much more frequently than I feel I have.

The main reason for this, is because of the occurances when I post multiple times in rapid succession. I guess I could pull those out of my dataset. I wish I stuck through college long enough to take some statistics classes. I have heard from several people that they were awful, but it’s times like these that it might be all worth it.

Here are some interesting tid-bits I gathered from the data while working on the new feature.

  • I’ve posted 168 times since November 9th, 2000

  • Longest time between posts : 13 days, 22 hours, 3 minutes, 26 seconds

  • Shortest time between posts : 58 seconds

I like data. Even data for data’s sake.
