Wonderful plots. Thanks for posting them. Can you tell us a little
about your test setup? I think the group would enjoy hearing how
a long-term experiment like this is done.

I especially like the one-year plot since it nicely shows that even
after a couple of weeks real-world factors like mid-term stability
or environment or just plain random changes become as or even
more important than drift rates.
