problem with TagTime cache file

I am getting errors every time the TagTime prompt tries to send my data to Beeminder and I have on idea what’s causing it

here’s what it was looking like a few days ago:

and here’s what it looked like just now:

can someone help please? ty!

No idea about the specifics, but it is just a cache file.

Move it somewhere (so that you’ve got a copy for posterity) and run beeminder.pl

Backups are advisable because I hacked my tagtime files long ago, and this may not be the official answer…

But I am confident in the “It’s just a cache file” part. Your TagTime log file and your Beeminder goal are the master sources, the cache just saves having to examine the whole of history after every ping.

thanks for the reply!

I get the same error after moving the cache aside

before moving the cache:

$ ./beeminder.pl nslater.log nslater/pq
Cache file missing or empty (nslater+pq.bee); recreating... [Bmndr data fetched]

ERROR: total != nquo+nchg+nadd (0 != 2+0+0)
Datapts: 0 (~2 *0 +0 -0), Pings: 0 (+0 -0) w/ tag pq

moved the cache:

$ mv nslater+pq.bee nslater+pq.bee.bak

after moving the cache:

$ ./beeminder.pl nslater.log nslater/pq
Cache file missing or empty (nslater+pq.bee); recreating... [Bmndr data fetched]

ERROR: total != nquo+nchg+nadd (0 != 2+0+0)
