Why are the recent average credits on the Account page and the Computer page different? The total credits are the same in both places.

The value of RAC depends upon the time of calculation. It is an exponentially decreasing average. Credit granted a week ago counts 1/2 as much as credit granted now. If the calculation is run a few hours apart, there will be a noticeable difference in the numbers.
