Your default for expiration is set to 14 days. When you created the
account, it was 7/17/97 and its expire was set to 14 days from that,
or 7/31/97 (see the admin for teh default expire setting). Then when
paid it, the account was set to 8/31/97. Repeat this process again
and you'll see the dats MUCH different.

Because your default expire is set to 14 in the admin.

Just luck, just like the match above comes out to be.
