Ahh... two phases.  It had been so long ago that it was
only one event in my mind.

This is a good example of why you can't measure productivity
by lines produced.  This was amazingly good work yet
removed huge amounts.  You would still be working your way
out of debt for the "negative productivity." :)

Yeah.  The graphs are definitely compressed.

It looked like you could run cvsplot against specific
and shorter periods. Could you suggest a couple
and I will run them?  Might be interesting.
