I have worked my stats first by adding 0 for missing days (so I get dips). I
have reworked to handle missing days. This will support mega flushes and
friday only flushing.....
Basic rule - do not calculate on days no blocks are recieved.
Same as current average. Your last average reminds forever.
HL = Half-Life days
LD = Last recieved a block
TD = Today
HLP = Prior Half Life Average
HLN = New Half Life Average
CB = Current Block
HLN = ((HL - 1) / HL) ^ (TD - LD) * HLP + 1 / HL * CB
Should beable to be done with current average
FD = First Date
TD = Today
GA = Grand Average
TB = Total Blocks
GA = TB / (TD - FD + 1)
