Overdue update, 10/06/07:
Just as predicted by my graph I got my ravelry invite in the second week in September. On September 11, to be precise :)
Just to show you (hmmmm... who might that be??) that I do indeed do science along with all the knitting:
Yes, for a little while now I have laboriously jotted down in my Excel spreadsheet where I am in line for accessing the much-talked about ravelry.com phenomenon. Is that too nerdy?? ;) As you can tell from my little trendline, I can expect my invitation around the second week in September!! That means 2.5 months on the waiting list... and there are over 13 thousand people behind me in line. Amazing.
On a side note, I admire the linearity of this. They really are sending out the same number of invites, on average, every day and have been doing so for the time I've had my little experiment rolling. They're not matching, though, the number of people who add themselves to the list, so it's tail just gets longer and longer...
