It is a warm summer night, you sit in your recliner and enjoy a hot cup of coffee right before midnight.
Except you are not because it’s winter right now, who would drink coffee that late (let’s not be silly) and also you are horribly akratic and skating the edge of your YBR.
But it is shortly before midnight.
And thus you’re at your laptop, the beeminder bot just stopped bugging you that there’s 5 minutes missing because like the Pro you are you just barely squeezed enough productivity out of the last minutes of this day to make the bot happy and your goal not derail.
But you keep going! You hit Start in the beeminder app once again and 15 minutes past midnight you log that data point, finally giving in to the sweet lure of being done. For today.
At peace with yourself and the world you finally relax in your recliner and take a look at your dashboard. The app logged 17 minutes on this new day even though it’s just 00:15. How interesting! Except not really because you hit Start at 23:58 and even @shanaqui’s bunnies can do that math. So that’s where those two minutes came from. Mystery solved. Case closed? I hope not for if the app would reflect that people use the stopwatch “across” the deadline… that would be nice attention to detail would it not?
