  • I think your screwed as far as volume of data goes. they seem to intentionally not support it...

    Have you looked at "Open Flash Chart" ? The graphs it produces can be extremely slick looking, and very interactive (both in terms of mouse over or clicking on elements of the graph and in using javascript via HTML form elements to auto update the data set) ... it can slurp it's data and options from a URL, which could be internet based, or a simple relative path for offline usage (just bundle the HTML, data, and SWF together)

    • Seeing as Google provide it as a free service, then I don't think it is unreasonable for them to set a maximum limit. However, as an interim solution it works for me. In the long run I'd rather create something that doesn't require an internet connection or rely on a remote provider.

      The flash stuff looks interesting, and I'll certain investigate, but for the CPAN Testers stats stuff I'd rather use something fairly static, so it can work in most browsers without requiring plugins.

      • i wasn't suggesting that they were being unreasonable, just that they seem to intentional limiting the volume of data, so i wouldn't hold your breath waiting for POST support in order to send more data.
