A very interesting bug?

I've just discovered a very interesting bug in the adsense reporting site.

When I see today's earnings from the "overview" page I have 7$ while in the "this month by day" report the sum for today is 8 :)

I still can't find a way to justify this. Do you get something similar too?

I've noticed quite a bit of numbers not adding up. Can't say it's been as high as $1.00 for me though; it's usually a penny or two.

I've had a few times where today might be over (meaning total shows more than clicks/channels) and the next day I'll be under by the same amount - usually 1 cent.

I figured in my case it was some flaw in their calculations with respect to rounding. Being an entire dollar off would be kinda hard for them to blame on a rounding error.

rounding error perhaps? though unlikely, more likely they are getting the figures from separate source. Is one an actual amount and one amount that you would receive for earning? that could explain the disparancy so you account has made  8$ of which 7$ is available and counts towards your cheque?

It can't be a rounding differnce as both of the decimals are similar.

The only thing I can think of is a different timing in the cache system.

yes, must be a timing issue, I have seen the same with sometimes a few bucks difference. It should be all adding up when you look at yesterdays total and details though

maybe this is related with this strange "bug"
