time! Or at least an acknowledgement of receipt... my other NSA FOIA request is going to be celebrating its third birthday soon.

I believe the NSA might have a German Tank problem with the FOIA queue: the request identifiers appear to be monotonic integers, so my linear regression estimates that they receive around six requests per day.

Updated my analysis with some additional NSA ID's contributed by other searchers, it appears that the agency might receive an average of 6.5 requests per day over the past five years.

@th wow that feels like knowledge they must have forgotten! Perhaps that information has liberated itself?

@penguin42 unfortunately no... the portal is wonderful for submitting requests, although I did send a followup query via fax. Do you think they still use typewriters, too?

@th @penguin42 If it's for the NSA you should just be able to email it to any non-US person and they'll get it. 😀​
