Not comfortable using reports in Kontera

I feel not comfortable using reports in Kontera. It is all confusing and not able to take out the reports I that would like to see. In Adsense it very easy and several report options are available, for example, it's quite easy to generate an "all the time", or "since last payment" report for Google Adsense, but as for Kontera, how can I get the report for all the time since I registered my account? There are custom dates for me to choose from, but it seems the starting date always keeps changing, last time I can get my report starting from 2008-9-19, but today I can only start from 2008-9-24, and revenues seem keep changing too, I mean, it seem doesn't increase all the time, sometimes decrease!

I double checked my Kontera report, and it does seem to drop some data. I saved my last report (date from 2008-09-19 to 2009-03-17), but this time I can not go back to 2008-9-19, I can only go back to 2008-9-24, so I generate anther report dated from 2008-9-24 to 2009-3-17, and found that at least in one channel click through decreased (not accumulated instead) from 311 to 308, and revenue decreased 9.95 to 9.83.

As far as I could recall from my bad memory, I found I had less revenue in my last report than the one before last.

I have raised this issue in Hubpage forum, and send an email to Kontera, and I got the quick response from Kontera, daily reports can only date back over 180 days, overall revenues earned since you joined can be obtained by sending them an e-mail with that request through the "Help" tab in the Kontera Publisher Center. In the "Select Issue" field select "Payment Issue" from the drop-down menu and your request will be automatically directed to our Accounting Department that will issue the comprehensive revenue report per you request.

Latest update:

Kontera only pays out for months in which an account has earned at least $5.00 in revenue, which means as long as during a particular month you earned at least $5.00, then that month's revenue is added to your account total.

This is unfair for small publishers. I joined Kontera six months ago, but to-date, my account has not yet met the monthly revenue minimum so far, consequently I have been working hard for Kontera for nothing!

If you are Sandbox Publisher like me, please be warned, read the TOS carefully before you join any advertise network. Or you will find yourself a fool.

You can insert special characters by clicking "Insert" on the menu, then click the "Ω Special Characters", the choose "Latin" category from the drop-down menu, and then Phonetics (IPA) sub-category. Insert Special Characters in Google Docs There is a short-cut for inputting some IPA symbols which you use them frequently. Automatic Substitution in Google Docs similar to Auto Correct in MS Word.

Virgin Media Netgear Wireless Router Username and Password

As Virgin Media customer, if you find your wireless router is Netgear, then you may type the router's setup URL into a web browser address bar. http://192.168.0.1 is the default Netgear router IP address. http://192.168.1.1 will work for some Netgear models. Mine setup URL is http://192.168.1.1 . Then you are required to enter a username and password. If you haven't change the default setting, it is "virgin" and "password", you may find that on a label stuck on the router. This default username and password of Virgin Wireless router is different from that of the normal Netgear router. The default username of Netgear is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Then you open the configure interface, change the settings, such as change your DNS server to OpenDNS . For a normal Netgear router, if you forget the username and password, you can reset and restore the NETGEAR device to factory default settings. But I couldn't find any button on

URL cannot contain a Google host

Google just opened up Knol to the public. Knol is also serving up AdSense advertising on the site. Authors on Knol can enter their AdSense data into Knol, and will get the regular AdSense payout for every click on an ad. This seems like a smart way to reward users who write the best (or most popular) content, while still making money for Google, because the cut Google already takes from the advertising through AdSense anyway. Currently, I don't know how may we track ads performance on knol, I tried to add an URL channel, and got error message: "http://knol.google.com/k/-/k3-searching-tv-programs-using-teletext/2p3t2lhf3x6sj/6#" at line 1 invalid: URL cannot contain a Google host. Has anybody any idea of how to do it?
