As I haven't posted anything in a few months, thought I'd share the one trick with you (Ben said I was the man to do it  ;))

Let me know what you think.

Yesterday, Duncan and I happened upon all four generations of the Finesse diabolo at the same place. Of course, I had to take a photo. It's interesting to see how Babache has increased the width of the diabolos with each generation. That was initially one of their selling points.

You can download the full sized version here:
which could be of help if you're trying to figure out what generation you have.

The following are the 100 most viewed video threads on (as of May 2010) from an analysis of the forum database. It shows the 100 most viewed video threads after controlling for the trend of overall thread views over time. It only includes videos from the main video section. Older videos are going to have a lower average views/day since they've been around for a lot longer. Newer videos are going to have a higher than average views/day. Some years there were more people using the forum than others. This analysis picks out the 100 videos (the red dots) that deviate the most from this trend (the red line). The trend line was derived from a generalized additive model using the mgcv package in R.

Update February 28 2013: A plot with the top 180 videos from 2004–2012:

Note the log scaled vertical axis.
The second plot doesn't precisely match the tables below. I ran the 2010–2013 analysis separately because I didn't want to touch the original table as posted.

Some of the usernames need to be changed to reflect the actual creator of the video. Also, I think it could benefit from a handcrafted section highlighting some of the great videos before the forum started. Suggestions for those? Two Loose in Toulouse for sure...
