Good grief. Sourceforge tells me that downloads of SaVi have hit an all-time high (96.196% activity percentile last week, as opposed to 0.0% or <10%, whatever that means, since I've no idea what the distribution is - Zipf?), and I still haven't had to read any email about problems with the thing.

The increase in downloads could be down to the new introductory screenshot (showing Globalstar running under Geomview) on the webpages perhaps looking slightly more eye-candyish than the old introductory screenshot (showing Molnya running standalone). Or the increase could be down to me mentioning SaVi in these diary entries. Or it's due to creating a direct download link when updating pages for the new release. Or even Sourceforge improving their stats and graphing. (Still five significant figures? Hmmm.) I'd always wondered about some of those 0.0%. Hang on, if I don't believe the figures when they're low, why should I start believing them just because they're now high? And isn't talking about downloads and counters so 1995ish?

The lack of mail? Either it's working fine for everyone, or it's not working at all. Either way, since it's fully-disclaimed free software, I shouldn't be worrying about it. I just find it odd that I'm worrying about the fact that I shouldn't be worrying about it. And I find it odd that I find it odd. That worries me.

I must learn to let go; everyone else did.
