You know, I've been following his posts for more than a year now (yes, ALL his posts) and it certainly doesn't feel like he made 1 post a day already. Yes, there was more activity around march/april or whenever the first ST3 betas were released, but was it really that much?
I didn't go by 'feel'. I used 'Advanced Search' and put 'jps' in the author field. You can do the same thing if you don't 'believe' me. It shows 10 posts per page. 30 pages in 2013, and 57 pages in 2012. Plus 2 on page 88. That's 300, and 572. Like I said.
There were 2 standout stretches in 2013 with no posts. One during the first 2 weeks of 2013, and one for about 6 weeks, from Sept.1 to Oct. 16.
And, I thought it would have been obvious, but apparently there are those who just need it spelled out for them, so, ok: Yesterday's julian day number was 300. 300 posts divided by 300 days amounts to an a-v-e-r-a-g-e of 1 post per day. Got it?
Granted, I only took one semester of stats, as I got permission to trade one out for advanced algorithms. But I think I got enough out of it for this exercise.
Ya know, you guys can do what ever you want. I don't give a crap. I got nothin' invested here. Except $59 and a pretty decent experience with the tool. I've somehow managed to use it to pump out about 22k lines of CoffeeScript in the last 13 months, with no real complaints. Coupla glitches, but I worked around them, with the help of information I found in these forums. If it goes dark, I've got plenty of other tools and resources. Not that worried about it.
But I know a railroad job when I see it.
