Interesting. I'm curious how 14 worked, since that always gives you 2 of
each day of the week, instead of 3 of some and 2 of the rest.

In any event, is there an easy way to document the moving average length on
the page (would it work in the dropdown?), so people will know what they
are looking at?

Again, this is very cool. All of the smoothed version are so much more
comprehensible than the raw plot. Thanks for adding this feature.
