    What time is the mega millions drawing tonight?  It says 11pm on their website, but the station here in ct says 11:22.  I'd like to watch it live.

              I bet $14 but didn't get more than 1 number on a row.   I can't go to sleep until I know if there was a jackpot winner.   Did you hear the host on WGN say if there was no winner, it would be $480 million next time!?!   Wow!

                Wow, that was the first time I've ever seen my network bandwidth literally pegged at 100% continuously.  It was like a heart monitor that goes flat-line, except at the top of the scale.

                Even now, more than an hour later, the bandwidth is at around 95%, which is why LP is a bit sluggish.

                USA Mega was up & rock solid for the whole time, which I'm pretty happy with.  I think if it rolls I have an even better way to speed things up, but I guess we'll find out if that will be necessary in an hour or so.  (Maybe less.)

                For the hundreds of thousands of people with the Lottery Results Gadget installed, their Mega Millions results were delivered right at 11:00 pm directly to their desktop.

                As the person who actually entered the results in the database, I thought it was pretty neat to enter the winning numbers in the database, and then see the gadget update (and play my set sound effect) a minute later.  Like and "around the world", but with lottery results.

                Anyway, I'll be getting the pages I took offline back up and running soon.

                I hope someone here won!!!

                    480 is apparently just an official conservative estimate, I'm more than certain it would storm well beyond 500.

                          Where's the list of the ten biggest jackpots in US history. I know I saw it around here somewhere.

                              Did anyone win? Do you think anyone from here hit jackpot? It look like not alot of posts from drawing till now. I mean there not alot of posts.
