This answer was just upvoted 5 times, with zero down-votes.

However, I only got 42 rep for it - based both on my total rep count I see (last up-vote changed the count by 2) and based on Summary/Recent Activity screen (shows 5/42 for that question).

However, I don't think I hit the daily cap, since my "recent" activity shows 42 reputation between 2010-03-23 14:34:29Z to 2010-03-23 23:59:59Z

Am I mis-understanding the timeframes for computing daily gap? (If I click on "Today" button it shows 253 rep, some of it from non-up-votes), Is that the reason?

Check your rep report at stackoverflow.com/reputation; example interpretation at meta.stackexchange.com/questions/43004/…. – Gnome Mar 23 '10 at 17:36
@Gnome - thanks! I didn't realize rep report is a permanent feature, my impression was that it was a one-time thing to estimate your change in rep due to recalc. – DVK Mar 24 '10 at 13:33
Time will tell if it's permanent or not, but I get the feeling the functionality is intended to stick around, even if the current format isn't. – Gnome Mar 24 '10 at 16:54

You answer your question yourself. When you click the envelope, the default view doesn't show a whole day. You have to explicitly click on 'today' to get everything for 'today'.

So yes, you already hit the cap today and that's why you only got 2 rep for the last up-vote.

Was afraid that's the case :( – DVK Mar 23 '10 at 17:59
