In the timewrap app. is 1week ago the same as current week? at least i think so if i look at the log data that feeds timewrap. Maby it should say "current week" then instead of 1w ago

I see the confusion. Yes, "1w ago" really means "the most recent week". "2w ago" means "the 2nd most recent week". Think if it referring to the start of each time period.

Perhaps if I just removed the word "ago", it might be less misleading. "1w", "2w", etc. The problem is that people might not be clear which is the more recent week. is the oldest "1w" and the next oldest "2w"? that's the exact opposite of what it means.

bottomline: i'm open to suggestions!

Ok, i see now. I really like your app, now i dont need to twist my brain to get the week vs week graphs right. But it would be nice to be able to somehow change the text on the graphs so people not getting confused about 1w ago = current week. Or if you could change the text to like most recent week as you suggested?

yes, I've got the same result. 1week is actually current week.
