What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I know this has been posted several times before. Lots of posts about it, and lots of [status-complete].

This image shows a default recent activity duration of 8 minutes and 49 seconds. I had not clicked any page in the SE network for 7ish hours. (unless I sleep-surfed the net.)

This image shows a duration of 6 seconds!! I'd been browsing SO and other sites in the network, but hadn't clicked a page on SO in several minutes (though I can't verify the times on this one).

Is it something in the way I'm browsing the SE network? Could it be that I have the Stack Overflow Notifier extension and that is conflicting? I did disable it for awhile but still had issues with the duration.

I've got almost a day on my Gaming envelope; if I were to click on it again, it would then reset to right now. I would guess that it is some app or extension which is causing this to reset for you without you actually visiting the page. That, or maybe you are sleep-surfing. – Grace Note Sep 29 '10 at 16:35
@Grace, I still see the issue with my extension disabled. I had not viewed the recent activity page 6 seconds ago when that was the duration it showed me. – Rebecca Chernoff Sep 29 '10 at 16:38
What does your envelope report if you are to go to your envelope at stats? – Grace Note Sep 29 '10 at 16:41
@Grace, Duration since the 17th. |: – Rebecca Chernoff Sep 29 '10 at 16:53
Well, looks like it isn't any kind of app or extension - you're sleep-surfing (or some otherwise unknowing equivalent). Should get that checked out. ♪ – Grace Note Sep 29 '10 at 16:55
@Grace, pretty sure that isn't the issue. (; – Rebecca Chernoff Sep 29 '10 at 16:59
I just bookmarked the "today" page and click that instead... much more useful. – James McNellis Oct 9 '10 at 1:40
All I want is the TODAY list... it's not like that much happens in one day that I need to see a smaller portion of time. – Fosco Nov 24 '10 at 14:57
