Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

It took several hours, but after gruesome work two girls scouring the ' net—with only one cup between them to store rep!—finally gathered up all the lost reputation points:

Screenshot of Gnome with 1,160,825 rep.

The key to their success was clues hidden in the new rep audit reports. Over the course of the next several weeks I will be returning this rep to those deserving souls that come up with the best uses for these new reports.

Some sort of custom, detailed graph control is an obvious choice, but even simple tools are needed to run locally and retrieve the reports so that personal downvoting history can be stripped before processing (if it's going to be uploaded anywhere).

What's the coolest, niftiest, and most useful purpose to which you can put the rep reports?

Despite the attempted humor in the prelude, I really am serious about the question at the end. – Gnome Mar 22 '10 at 12:33

I used my rep report on SO to calculate PI to 1,000,000,000 digits, still well short of the world record held jointly by Jon Skeet and Chuck Norris.

When Jon Skeet calculates pi he just gets 3.0, because pi doesn't want to inconvenience him. – user27414 Mar 22 '10 at 13:24
@Jon B -- sounds like he lives in Indiana: My kid's taking a history of math course at the U (perhaps, the hardest math class ever) and told me about the linked item. – tvanfosson Mar 22 '10 at 13:52

I printed off ten copies of my rep report then scrunched them up to use as fire lighters for my stove. Lost some rep but gained fire lighters, every cloud has a silver lining.
