Do questions answered tale off after 5PM EST?

I would love to see some statistics on the traffic on SO as the East Coast logs off and heads home.

Here's the per-hour question graph from the latest data dump. (More statistics available.)

As you might imagine, the world is a lot bigger than Eastern Standard Time.

If you like those, there are lots more statistics for each site, too. –  Greg Hewgill Dec 17 '10 at 2:08

I think you could probably query http://data.stackexchange.com/ to figure this out. The query page seems to contain Date objects for various actions.

I would probably need to know IP Addresses for questions with accepted answers. –  hunter Dec 17 '10 at 1:44
    
Questions have IP addresses? I'm not sure what you mean. –  Adrian Petrescu Dec 17 '10 at 1:55
    
I guess @hunter is looking for a way to filter on region/timezone. IP addresses are not available in the data dumps though. Might be a nice enhancement though, to add some not-too-private region to the user details. –  Arjan Dec 19 '10 at 19:15
