Stock Music: Work stuff. Stock Sound-effects: Home stuff

Running a site for royalty-free music, and another site for royalty-free sound effects, has given me an insight into sales of these two types of products, and one of the things I've come up with is this rather interesting factoid...

Stock Music / Production Music sells most on the weekdays, less in the weekends. Stock Sound Effects seem to sell more on the weekends than on the weekdays. It would seem that mostly the people who buy Production Music / Stock Music are people working in offices, licensing the music for work stuff. Whereas people who buy Stock Sound Effects / Sound FX downloads, are mostly at home, working on some personal / weekend projects.
