#281

Meta went off

[[beaten by @Tarn!]]


#282

Support Zero went off


#283

Turns out we eked by on that one! Per fine print rule #4.


#284

Roaded is off

[[confirmed! $90 owed to @nevan]]


#285

Beemail is off


#286

That was my mistake, not a legit derail. A beemail was sent today but I failed to update the graph because I’m inexperienced at beemail sending.


#287

Ah, fair enough


#288

infra is off?

[[confirmed! $270 paid to @aaronpk]]


#289

Support Zero is off


#290

This is a non-legit derail. I did the task on time and entered the data on the minute of the deadline (if you hold your mouse over the datapoint the title text tells you when it was entered), but I was rushing and didn’t notice that I entered the data for the 23rd, not the 22nd (the new day, rather than the old). I’ve corrected the date of the datapoint now, and emailed support to get the derail undone.


#291

…Since I happened to be passing by, hey, support zero is off! Does it count if I say it?

#292

Just learning about this arrangement, and noticed that d/meta is in the red. Brand-new to Beeminder, so I’m not sure if that means it derailed and the goal is reset for today?


#293

Cool. Welcome to the hive!

Just like with your own goals, you’ll see that there’s a countdown at the top of d/meta. Danny has until the end of the day to scramble back onto the road.

In this case, as I’m looking at it now, he’s got until 6am in his time zone (you may be able to see the watermark in the upper left quadrant of his graph) to do 6.75 hours of work on Beeminder.

If he hasn’t managed that in the next 20 hours, I think you should get first claim for having asked an honest and sensible question… not least because our onboarding emails ought to make the workings clearer!


#294

it looks like bee’s goals (4, 6, and 10) are set to private? or maybe i can’t view them for some reason and i’m just a noob.

and are the 10 listed goals the only ones users are allowed to claim? meta/derev is derailled at the time of writing, for example, but isn’t listed.


#295

Sorry all, I had my card blocked temporarily because I’d misplaced it, and a charge for one of my personal goals failed and so my account was flagged :flushed:. I’ve found the card and updated everything now.


#297

Did roaded go off?


#298

Negative, @bee broke her TagTime when testing http://beeminder.com/changelog#2713 and it caused a spurious derail! From her message to support:

Not legit! I had some timezone confusion with my tagtime because I was debugging some timezone related stuff and switched my computer’s timezone then foolishly left it shifted into the future and wandered off for dinner and then tagtime got real confused when I returned. Please cancel this derail, and put my weekend back in. I also had a break scheduled for next week sometime because we’re travelling to my grandma’s memorial service, (but I don’t remember exactly when I started the break) so anyhow, keep an eye out for that!


#299

Timezones! Causing programmers headaches since 1970-01-01.

Infra is off
