8,000 pounds

(this is a crosspost from our announcement mailing list.)

Oh, you pretty things:

As most of you have probably noticed, since the beginning of September we've recorded the weight of "all" things which pass through Repo. This, as well as some other information, is recorded directly to a spreadsheet, which in turn gives us running totals on gross flow vs inbound and outbound.

Yesterday afternoon, Tracy Lee picked up a piece of drywall which put us over the 8,000 lbs (gross) mark.

In celebration, and as a perhaps less-exciting homage to Harper's Index, here are a few charming statistics:

Day in which the most material moved, total in and out:
September 23, 2009, with 1549.7 lbs

Day in which the most material left Repo:
September 25, 2009, with 417 pounds.

Number of days since August 31, 2009 that Repo has not recorded any material flow:

Five lowest non-zero daily totals, in pounds:
0.1, 0.9, 2, 4.5, 6.5

Average flow per day, since August 31, 2009:
133.72 pounds.

Average donation size:
44.35 lbs

Average outbound transaction size:
10.78 lbs

Number of unique entries in the "email address of recipient/donor" column:

For those of you who prefer raw, hard data, our monthly spreadsheets are available (note, of course, that October still has a few days left to go.)

WIth love and a twinkle in the eye,
