I suggest you ...

display up to date goal stats (and phantom data point?)

For a cumulative total graph, I need to report "^ 0" in order to update the goal stats if I haven't already reported anything. It would be cool if this updated automatically — or are there cases where the current behavior is preferable?

Reporting "^ 0" also produces a data point where it might be nice to automatically have a phantom data point, once yesterday is over.

    Ah, yes, I just noticed this morning that the phantom data point and stats are exactly as I expect, and I haven't entered a data point yet. Great!

    I hadn't noticed the time zone setting yet, that helps. Thanks.

    I think this is only an issue between midnight and 3am or so, when the graph automatically refreshes for the next day and does the phantom data point thing, like you say.

    (Make sure you set your time zone in your account settings so 3am is what you think it is.)

    Finally, if you do want to force a refresh, you can just hit the MAKEITSO button (without actually changing anything with the road dial).

    Does that work? We should still make this kind of thing more intuitive!

    PS: Thanks for the awesome feedback today, and was that you with the pull request for TagTime? You rock.
