We have also come up with a couple of sets of statistics we thought might be interesting. One table we won't have is the ten best days in terms of points earned, mainly because the top twelve days (and 26 of the top 50) during the quarter were scored by hielo. Of the 2,220,597 points hielo earned in the first 91 days of the year, 1,761,077 were earned in the last 60 days -- a pace of over 8,000,000 points in a year.
