Testing sparklines...

Just a quick rendition of the four types of Sparklines as allowed via the library for ruby At the moment they are a bit throw-away, but if they can be integrated into some dynamic data where you care about trends rather than figures, such as load average, then it could be useful. The other feature I think it's missing is the lack of being able to tag a point with a value, such as this example up in the top left corner, as does the original post from Mr Tufte. This is crucial in presenting a single numeric value, and the reader being able to infer whether this is high, low, or average.

Anyway, on with the Typo show...

Update: Since I've now moved to Mephisto, I've ditched the content of this post
