in reply to Chatterbox stats

You know, technically, it's 0000 EST. The 24 hours clock goes from 0000 (12 midnight) to 2359 (11:59 pm).

But I thrive on techincallities.... and not spelling.

    Military genearally used 2400 instead of 0000. I come from a military family so that's what I learned. Both are correct though. :)

      Well then. If you come froma military family, I'd say you'd be corect.

      From a mathematical stand point, 0000-2359 is easier, since you can calculate any time using mod 24.

      eg, if it's 1100 now, in 100 hours, it will be
      [ 11 ] + [ 100 ] = [ 111 ]
      = [ 15 ]


      So, it'll be 1500.

    Sorry about the repeat posts...Mozilla crapped out on me, and when I hit back it just caused more problems I apologize. THe link to the results is Here
      If I'm reading the graph correctly I am the most talkative. Unless this place is fairly quiet when I'm not around I'm guessing that your script just happened to monitor things when I was being unusually verbose and the others comparatively quiet. Other possibilities include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) People around here lacked a monastery idiot to add some variety to these otherwise quiet halls. (2) Monks don't tell people to shut up even if the situation calls for it. In either case, I can't help but wonder exactly how coincidental it was that the /chatteroff and /chatteron features were added to the feature list shortly after I arrived...

      I realize that integrating this into jcwren's stats page may give some people undue incentive to make noise, but could we run this again? I'm curious to know how this averages out over a slightly longer / different period of time.

      Also, are your stats measured in number of times text is posted to the chatterbox, or in amount of text submitted?

      And no, I don't own 27 pairs of sweatpants.

        Well, all in all, the script ran as long as it could on jcwren's computer. At times it would fail, and it would take a bit for jcwren to realize and get it started up. So it's not really a pure extraction of data. I don't really want to run it again, because I feel I will get an even less pure extraction. I think, if people knew it was running it would effect the chatterbox. Either people will talk too much or they will feel they shouldn't talk. I ran this under radar so it wouldn't effect anyone.

      It appears that your script does not distinguish

      and all is quiet...

      from

      and all is quiet...

      because I chat very little. :-)

        That is too funny.

        --
        $you = new YOU;
        honk() if $you->love(perl)

        No, it doesn't distinguish between the two! Sorry about that! We thought about that, but since you don't chat much we know you're not running your mouth.
