Nope - try the process. I will send anyone a copy of my own stats - big drop
outs... Both graphics look the same... Those with zero for days that are
missing -- those with the zeros calculated in the process,
Day N = 100 blocks
Day N+1 = 0 blocks
Day N+2 = 0
Day N+3 = 100
Ten day half life - 0 is starting amount
N = Avg = 0 * 9/10 + 100 * 1/10 = 10
N+1 = Avg = 10 * 9/10 + 0 * 1/10 = 9
N+2 = Avg = 9 * 9/10 + 0 * 1/10 = 8.1
N+3 = Avg = 8.1 * 9/10 + 100+ 1/10 = 17.29
Only on flush day:
n = Avg = 0 * 9/10 + 100 * 1/10 = 10
n+3 = Avg = 10 * 9/10 * 9/10 * 9/10 + 100 + 1/10 = 17.29
(9/10 ^ 3 - for the three days that passed)

I agree and I prefer - The powers that be don;t wnat to change the average
method method -- would make people upset - so I adapted to match the
