Measuring LiveJournal growth

In this lj_biz car crash discussion, halfjack wondered what sort of effect the removal of invite codes had on the rate of account creation at LiveJournal. I did a quick gnuplot chart of the result, which was pretty striking.

I decided to do a better chart as a quick project to learn gnuplot a bit better, and ended up charting account creation rate and userbase for what I believe are the five largest LiveJournal-based journal sites: LiveJournal, DeadJournal, GreatestJournal, Blurty, and uJournal.
