Down for me again this morning.  Came here to see if it was down for others, too, or if it was just me.

Just got finished yesterday copying and pasting, day by day, all the data since the change was made. The data I used to be able to download in a spreadsheet... There's been no word if/when that ability will be back.

Dead here too.

I seriously want to use the old version again. At least it was reliable with today's figures.

The whole problem with going to a server, is it needs 24/7 support, and its not getting it when I need it the most, which is after Hawaii midnight.

Seriously, I think a combination of old and new is needed. Run the new until the all data is loaded, then run the old just to keep up each day, with a small patch to update the server stats, which doesn't hang the program if the server isn't there.

Its doing way too much recalculating, and the server obviously cant handle it.

At any one time, all I want is today, and the month to date. I rarely look at anything else, except on month change.

Does anyone have another email? I've been emailing for a week after I went through my records and realized I've been billed several months when I was well under the threshold, most recently last month. I've emailed several times with no response. Otherwise Book Report has been working fine for me, but I don't like paying when I shouldn't have to......

I emailed once without a response, too.

Liam should think about outsourcing his business email to a VA.

Might be time to move on to Booktrkr. Or just not bother with any of them. Since my Book Report stopped working, I haven't been checking sales. I'm getting more work done :)

I was charged incorrectly last month, emailed them and got a refund. Charged again incorrectly this month. No reply to my email so hoping to get a response here. Also bookreport is missing some of my sales where the payment is on the kdp report, so it's not very useful.

I heard back from Book Report finally and apparently everything is being refunded, so I'm pleased.

Yes, they've now responded to me too. Hopefully they've fixed it so it doesn't happen again.

BookReport has always been good about making adjustments.

I miss seeing the graph that shows sales and page reads. Am I missing something? Will it ever come back?

Several books in my book report are showing NaN in the sales column. I've never had this one before. Anyone know what it means? I thought it might mean no sales, but it's showing up in the monthly report as well, on books I know have had sales this month.

Feel good romance with a touch of magic.

Several books in my book report are showing NaN in the sales column. I've never had this one before. Anyone know what it means?

NaN literally means "not a number." In this case I can't answer why something is failing and giving the not-a-number result, but common causes are a variable that hasn't been defined, a variable that contains the wrong type of data (e.g., a character instead of a number), or a division by zero. Ideally the code would detect the incorrect condition and display a more meaningful message. Of course that's easy for me to say since I'm not doing the coding. :)

I found this yesterday, read pages of replies and finally read enough to convince me to try it.
I can see instantly that I made 1 penny today for 4 page reads, it made me smile, if I ever sell more than 1 book and get more than my current 49 page reads, this will be even more useful, sitting open on my desktop :)
I love it.
