Here are some numbers for the meaningless-but-fun-statistics bin. Codeplex collects a bunch of numbers for me, so I can preserve them here.
Yesterday, Sunday, October 27th, 2013, SPServices crossed the 100,000 total downloads threshold. I posted the first version of SPServices (SPServices 0.2.3) on Codeplex on Aug 19th, 2009 as an alpha. That means it’s taken 4 years, 2 months, and 9 days – that’s 1531 days – to reach 100,000 downloads. That’s over 65 downloads per day!
Yes, I do make it up in volume.
