Actually, what we should do is put a 'History' page off that main one that 
expands that chart to include the previous two or three months, as well as this 
one ... would be easier/faster to implement then a graph too ...

Antony?  Have a couple of minutes to whip that together?  Maybe do it similar 
to the countries page, but instead of listing countries, list month/year? 
maybe go back 6 months?
