The key I took out for StackMobile is behaving strangely. I make a few requests, and then the limit resets to 0. (By limit, I'm referring to the X-RateLimit-whatever-its-called header.)

Update: it's not the limit (10000) that's getting reset, it's the number of requests remaining. It starts at 9999 and every few requests, it resets to 9999.

You can view the results of the headers from the last request at stackmobile.com/about.php – Nathan Osman Jul 17 '10 at 19:22

Fixed.

Remember, that the API limit is per-IP and per-site. For you, the important part is per-site.

So, SO gets 10,000 requests a day, SF gets 10,000 requests a day, etc. etc. This can make your about kind of... confusing, as its showing the last requests headers.

@George - replicated, looking into it. – Kevin Montrose Jul 17 '10 at 19:29
    
@Kevin: Ah. Thank you. Looks like some code adjustment is required now... – Nathan Osman Jul 17 '10 at 21:35
    
So was this problem on my end exclusively then? – Nathan Osman Jul 17 '10 at 21:36
    
@George - no, there was a subtle bug on ours as well. – Kevin Montrose Jul 18 '10 at 6:44
