Or even:

http://groups.google.com/groups/profile?show=more&enc_user=RVb59hAAAADAKHw2rKTOXQmYRzwTg33E&group=comp.lang.python

which shows 456 posts to clp over the last 9 years, but only about once a 
year for the last 3 years.

For comparison, according to Google I've managed 2251 posts to clp since 1997 
which I find kind of scary.
