This is a graph of my progress on
Closure: The Definitive Guide
It is generated using the history in the Subversion repository for the book
and is updated every six hours by checking for updates to the PDF.
The page count admittedly includes things like the table of contents and the
preface, so it is a slight overestimate of how much I have actually written.
It may be confusing why the graph does not quite start at zero. That is because
I wrote two chapters before I started with O'Reilly, so those went into the
repository right away. There is also the near-vertical line in the third week of
January where I had held back from checking things in because they weren't ready
for Rough Cuts, so once the first draft of the book went live on Rough Cuts, I
checked everything in.
