I just did a multiday position survey (7.8 days so far) and it sure
looks like the most of the gps offset from it's average position
repeats on a daily basis.  I didn't expect this result.  I would have
thought that most of it was white-noise and averaging could reduce it
to nothing if one was willing to wait long enough.

What is amazing is the amount that the offsets track on a day-to-day
basis.  Next, to find out the exact difference between sideral and
solar day and correct for that in the overlays.  I bet that will take
care of at least some of the horizontal smearing of the graph.
