Topic: List statistics (5 msgs / 110 lines)
1) From: Jeffrey A. Bertoia
I was cleaning up a laptop and moving files from one place to another and I
came accross an interesting set of statistics.
Between September 3, 2002 and December 31, 2002 this list saw approximateley
6682 Messages for a whopping total of 26.6Mb.
That works out to about:
56 messages a day or 229Kb a day.
No wonder I have such a hard time keeping up with this list anymore.

Man that's nothing.  I'm on another mailing list, a private one with a
membership of about 40 individuals, which ran 3,893 messages between New
Year's and today, for an average over 155 per day.  Yikes.

Wow!  I'm on a couple that do upwards of 50 per day, not to mention a bunch
of others, so that I get something over 200 messages a day (even after
cutting back), but that surprises even me.  May I ask what general subject
generates that sort of volume?  It sounds like you must belong to an
uncommonly active group of stock market daytraders or something.

The alleged subject is supposed to be classical music, but that only
accounts for about 10% of the discussion.  It's actually just a bunch of
internet acquaintances most of whom have known each other from the iLink
network year ago, and many of whom have met in person at least once if
not more.
Everyone jokes about no topic being off topic.  Today's subjects have
ranged from the origins of Cream of Wheat, recipes for earthworms, the
compositions of one of the members, shaving brushes and other
paraphernalia, etymology of various phrases, Randy Newman, Greek
mythology, transposing keys in music, and so on.  There have been 134
messages so far since midnight today.  Typical ....
There is one guy on the list who's into coffee.  Has a Maestro and
everything, but not a home roaster.  Apparently lives within walking
distance of a place that does some quality roasting and he picks up a
pound or so at a time just after it's been roasted.  We drive everyone
else there crazy going on about coffee from time to time.  ;)

That makes sense.  Sounds like a nice group.
