[ #21523 ]

Thanks to today beeing a holiday in Austria (on October 1955 Austria declared it will be neutral for all eternity, thus ending occupation by USA, UK, USSR and France after WW2) I spend some time on CPANTS.

I finally managed to prepare everything for and set up a cronjob to run CPANTS every week (for now). The cronjob starts at 5am each saturday. It takes about 3 hours, so fresh data should be available at aprox 8am.

I also generate some very simple HTML pages available from There is an overview page containing a short description of the project, links to talks and the SQLite DB files and links to weekly reports.

The reports currently consist of some nice diagrams generated with GD::Graph, but I plan to add more (especially one showing the average Kwalitee over time)

  • I found some more time between bringing the kids to bed and going to the Austrian Big Brother Awards [] to hack up a "average kwalitee over time"-chart. Which shows that average kwalitee went up 0.00145. Wow!

    • How many absolute points is that?

      sqlite> select count(*) from kwalitee;
      sqlite> select sum( kwalitee ) from kwalitee;

      That's and average of 10.5 (out of a possible 13, so it's higher than I expected, but I didn't bother to calculate the standard deviation).

      From last time, it looks

      albook_brian[804]$ sqlite ~/File*/Kwa*/cpants-20041008.db
      SQLite version 2.8.15
      Enter ".help" for instructions
      sqlite> select count(*) from kwalitee;
      sqlite> select sum( kwalitee ) from kwalitee;


      • Please keep in mind that both data generation and analysis is still very much in ALPHA stage. While I try hard to generate reasonable results, they might still be dodgy.

        Hey, that sounds like a reasonable disclaimer I should stick to all CPANTS-pages...
