EDIT: Ok dum dum me I figured this out, but will leave this post up for feedback to beeminder, inc. I was misinterpreting when “today” starts on the graph. Perhaps beeminder could be improved to more clearly mark “today” on the graph.
I have a goal to check my car’s oil once a week. (I just now changed it to 2 times per month, but that’s irrelevant to the question.) The graph suggests I need to do “+1 due in 1d 13h or pay $0”. Why would this be the case when I have so many buffer days? And why is today’s (purple) line so long?
