I am happy to announce that the update has been installed.  There were a few unexpected issues encountered after installing it, so a couple of tweaks later, it's finally ready and the site should be stable now.

The major updates are Windows Phone support and proper menu support for all Windows Phone, Windows RT, and Windows 8 touchscreen devices.  But there were a number of other improvements as well.

From a technology point of view, it is quite a major update, and the focus of the update (mainly on smartphones and tablets) reflects the fact that the amount of traffic from premium mobile devices has skyrocketed.  Developing a web site for a mobile device is very different from regular web site development for desktop computers — and creating one web site that works perfectly for both types of devices can be extremely complex.  It takes a lot of trial and error to get it right.

A list of the changes can be found in the Change Log.

One previously-unannounced change is the addition of Blackberry support to the premium mobile site, in addition to the announced Windows Phone support.  The new archiecture I built for the premium mobile site makes it much easier for me to add new platforms, so I was able to do it in the past week.

However, since I am at the moment a bit light on Blackberry testing devices, I am relying on Blackberry users to report any problems you might experience.

For that matter, anyone experiencing problems at this point, feel free to send me problem reports through a private message, through e-mail, or on this thread.  Since there were a lot of underlying changes, it's possible I missed something during testing.  So don't be shy about letting me know.

        Todd,

        As you continue to tweak your system and make it more user friendly for android users, it would be nice if you had a direct link to the pick3 and pick4 forums as opposed to having to go to the main menu and then use the drop down menu.

            Just create a bookmark in your Android browser.  To completely bypass the mobile site and go straight to the forum page, add ?m=mainsite to the bookmark URL.

            For example, for the Pick 3 forum, bookmark the following URL:

                  Hi Todd

                  Glad that you are enjoying your new HTC windows 8 phone. I currently have the nokia lumia 920 which is also a great phone. I had the HTC HD-7 phone also which work great with the LP site. I notice when I used the HD-7  I was able go to the page tab and select the individual pages. With the windows 8 version when I click on the tab nothing happens. Everything else works just find. I find this to be an issue since you can pin the last page that view to your start screen the refer back to it for updates during the day.

                    I'm not sure what you mean by the "page tab".  Is that a Windows Phone feature you're talking about?  Could Microsoft have changed the way it works in Windows Phone 8?

                      Hey Todd,  I couldn't  copy the whole thing but bottom of each page you have a downward arrow which you click on then you could select specific page. It might have to do with the update from windows 7 to  windows 8. not sure but it was useful feature.

                          OK, this issue should be fixed now.  The page selector was actually being displayed, but the Windows Phone has a bug that caused it to be displayed off-screen.  I worked around the bug and hopefully it is now working for all devices (including Windows Phone).

                          Also, I found a completely different bug that prevented the countdown timers from working on the results pages, so I fixed that too.
