You know how hard you try to click at just the right time for the one or two gold pieces friends can get, every 12 hours or so?

I sometimes wonder how accurate is the information you get. Tonight I clicked on the usual place and was told that one friend had had gold "unclaimed for 13 seconds". Within about 2 seconds of that appearance, i.e. about 15 seconds after it had allegedly become available, I clicked to claim it. Imagine my irritation on being told:

"Sorry, there's no Gold in Janice's profile right now!
"The last Gold was found there 19 seconds ago (by another Gold hunter!)"

Logically, that means it was claimed by someone else 3 or 4 seconds before it was available to me.
