No, it stays pretty constant.

The output wasn't stopping at all - just scrolling by fairly quickly.
It was speeding up and down a little but still going too fast to see
I was looking back through some old news.daily reports from when I had
a similar number of articles but about half the number of news groups
(20,000 as opposed to 41,000 now) and expireover was completing within
Also, expireover seemed to complete quicker when I was using timecaf as
opposed to timehash. Does that make sense, though, because I thought
that expireover only looked at the overview database and the history
files, not the article spool?
