Back in February, 2004 I blogged about the "Hyperbole" number that we use to monitor PubSub's matching rate. In 2004, we were proud to say that we were regularly matching at a rate of 3 to 7 billion matches per day. But, times have changed... These days, the daytime Hyperbole number is usually over 1 trillion matches per day. A quick check, just a moment ago, shows a rate of 1,604,636,741,992 matches/day. We've seen the number go much higher.
