John and Doves,
The total number of quakes in and around Christchurch since 9/4/2010 is fast
3,600 = 60 x 60. Nice number.
At 9pm Perth time on 12/3/2010 it has 3,579 listed.
Today is day #90.
With 21 quakes to get to 3,600 and at about 8 average perday it should be about 3 more days
or Dec 6th. People have mentioned that date as one to watch I think.
Keep looking up,
