Some statistics on linux-greek-users mailing list and

Out of boredom I decided to parse the Linux-Greek-Users (LGU) archives and create some graphs. Then I wrote a few more oneliners to deduct some numbers out of the archives. These numbers may or may not mean anything to someone, it’s entirely up to the reader.. Since the archives contain some amount of spam (not too much though) one must take that into consideration as well while reading the numbers I extracted below…

First thing I did was to download the index file containing the links to the monthly archives since February 1997:

Then download each month’s archive:
for i in `grep date index.html | cut -d"\"" -f2`; do foo=`echo $i|cut -d"/" -f1`; wget$i -O $foo-date.html ; done
