Why are my SEDE results inaccurate/obsolete/incorrect/outdated?

Although this post says status-completed for the caching problem on data.stackexchange, I'm still getting pretty old results. My suspicion led me to thinking results were being cache and was confirmed when I noticed different values for my rep and comment scores when I visited the actual posts/comments.

Can somebody verify if this has/will be fixed or any work-arounds? Or when will the cache be cleared/dumped next?

SEDE doesn't have live data, it was last updated Jun 26. Are you sure your results weren't valid on Jun 26? –  Yannis Aug 10 '12 at 12:19
    
@YannisRizos: Oh! I never knew that. I was under the impression query results were cached. Hmm. Then, I guess they should have been correct as of that date. Please post your comment as an answer. –  Robin Maben Aug 10 '12 at 12:28

Data Explorer doesn't have live data, and according to its FAQ it's on a monthly update cycle. It was last updated on June 26th, so the data are valid up until then. You can see when the data was last updated on the front page.

Ah! No wonder I missed it. Since the first time I visited I've had the queries page in my bookmarks. They should consider putting that info at the bottom of every query result. –  Robin Maben Aug 10 '12 at 12:45
