more like 4 months ago, weighted averaging.
new_avg = old_avg * ( (n-1)/n ) ^ days_skips + new_blocks * ( 1/n )
Now n should be in the range of 5 to 30. Thing of it a days over witch to
average. So 10 would equal to a 10 day running average.
Current DNET stops calculating your average on the last day you post.
days_skips will catch you up correctly for mega flush or weekly. days_skips
will always be at least 1 (you posted yesterday, you posted today, so 1 day
With this the calculation should be able to be processed by the member
records (rc5 total) only. (unless you mess a stats run :-)
If you start by using the average that is in place now, within N days all will be
right with the world.
