WHAT YOU’RE REALLY SAYING: I’m a seventh-grade girl.
THE FIX: Use your words.

Days worked: 98
Avg received per day: 44.244
Avg. sent per day: 12.081
I wanted to get some stats on IM, and couldn’t really generate any kind of line report. I did figure out a way to print up all of the chat logs into a PDF and then generate a PDF report. I was thinking maybe 50 pages or so, but it weighed in at 401 pages!
