When I click today I get this:

Showing 2009-06-14 to 2009-06-14 ; current time is 2009-06-14 19:12:14 UTC

When I click yesterday I get this:

Showing 2009-06-13 to 2009-06-14 ; current time is 2009-06-14 19:14:44 UTC

So yesterday shows me June 13th (yesterday) and June 14th (today). This doesn't seem right.

It seems to have been fixed, with SO revision 4938 introduced minutes ago. This "bug" could then be marked as "completed" – VonC Oct 13 '09 at 6:32

I will port here my comment on the UV entry:

True: "yesterday" should be the link allowing me to see what I have done yesterday compared to today.

Instead, I have to:

  • remember the "today" score,
  • go to yesterday
  • and *mentally subtract" it from the "yesterday score".

Very painful ;)

Agreed, and it's different from the "last week" link which behaves as expected. – Dav Aug 6 '09 at 22:52
Or you could just edit the URL to use the correct date range... :) – Ether Oct 5 '09 at 5:59

The query for yesterday should be:

where activitytime >= dateadd(day,datediff(day,0,getdate())-1,0)
  and activitytime <  dateadd(day,datediff(day,0,getdate())  ,0)

(using whatever field is appropriate for activitytime)

Edit: Actually, it's just about the link for 'yesterday'. Currently it goes to:


When it should be:


So the simple workaround is just to hack the URL you go to.

That seems to be the case since SO revision 4938. Yesterday now means just yesterday! – VonC Oct 13 '09 at 6:34
Yes, it seems fixed now! – Rob Farley Oct 14 '09 at 0:04

I thought I found something but the magic related titles search found this item. But this was first posted in back in June so I'm starting to wonder if this is a feature and not a bug.
