Interesting. Thanks for that. I guess the cases that required manual intervention stick out in my mind. I remember refresh monkeying a few of your deals around 12:30-40 AM PST.
GamersGate is really quite the hoot to watch. You can refresh and see human-time 4 daily deals changing over. Sometimes with short lived pricing errors (too high or low). Given that it happens at 8AM in Brittan, it seems plausible.
Looking forward to Dark Souls:Prepare to Die =)
Hey there, good question.
So the reason you can see prices taking 40-1/hr to propagate isn't anything to do with manual work vs. automation but rather one of latency in automation.
