Hi Alexey,

Just wondering - do the figures in the spreadsheet come from a real 
application, or are they contrived? They look deliberately contrived.

How does the curve look with the formula in the wiki if, instead of the 
download totals being for the current day, they're for the previous 
month? The idea of previous month or previous week is to even out the 
spikes you mention, while giving the same timeframe for all apps.
