Finally. the Algo for Google Payments at Christmas

For those who have been wondering exactly how Google pays early each year at Christmas, I finally figured it out. I analyzed the PIP thread and it was like a lightbulb went on in my brain! Voila!

It is quite simple. It all started Christmas Eve (the 24th) -- Australia and New Zealand came first... then the European/Asian countries... then on around to the East Coast of the U.S. before the sun rose on Christmas morning. This is EXACTLY the route that Santa Claus and his trusty reindeer take each year.

Google "Norad Tracks Santa" and see for yourself!

Our checks are obviously delivered by the guy in red himself. And who said there wasn't a Google Santa? Unfortunately he lost most of our potential Google gifts over the Atlantic Ocean in that freak storm...

Just been obsessing over this and have deduced the following (all from the adsense pmt screen, not my bank, but I'm sure Westcrap will come up with some way to charge me extra for this).

I'm using a fictional US$1,000 as an example for what I'm seeing.

December 27 payment made using the inverted exchange rate of .867: Payment listed as US$1000 to A$867.

Jan 2 payment listed as credited back for US$1000

Up to here it makes sense -- the obvious thing I would have thought would have been to follow the credit up with a payment of US$1000 at the correct rate - delivering around A$1153.

But no. Instead I see:

Jan 2 payment listed paying the US$ equivalent of the A$867 mentioned above -- ie around US$752. At least the exchange rate isn't reversed.

The Jan 2 leaves the (fictional) US$1000 account short-paid by just shy of US$250, so I assume there's another adjusting payment on the way... but it does seem a very confusing way of going about it.
