Caching. It's always caching... –  Yannis Sep 8 '13 at 21:34
    
@Yannis I visited in separate browsers and same difference. Is it a server cache or client cache? –  hallaji Sep 8 '13 at 21:44
    
@hallaji: I'd imagine it's caching it on the server side. –  icktoofay Sep 8 '13 at 21:46

There are a number of less critical items that are heavily cached server-side for performance sake (one of the reasons the site is as fast as it is).

Between today and yesterday, you answered 5 questions, so that appears to be the difference. If it doesn't update soon, to at least reflect your posts from yesterday, then I would suggest waiting a little longer. Eventually it will update, but because of the caching, if you want them to match, the only solution will be to take a couple of days off from answering ;-)

Discontinuing usage of stack overflow for any reason is not recommended –  Richard Tingle Sep 8 '13 at 22:15
    
@RichardTingle at least without being under a doctor's supervision –  psubsee2003 Sep 8 '13 at 22:16
    
The doctor must have ready an emergency tablet... with Stack preloaded... –  James Sep 8 '13 at 23:23
    
@psubsee2003 Funny :) But I think it is a little strange! Because of reputations and badges are synced without caching. Maybe there are set to no cache... –  hallaji Sep 9 '13 at 4:53
    
@hallaji virtually all of the calculated fields are cached, some are updated more frequently. Caching is a trade off for the site performance, and it something I think most frequent users will happily accept. –  psubsee2003 Sep 9 '13 at 8:59
