The <snip>ing thing is the Lottery says he used a program....how did he get in the room,plant said program,wait forever to play,They say they run test drawings before each drawing to ensure it's legit. So If it was me I'd like to have them show in court how I did it and you had drawings for weeks on end saying you tested the system. Then ask why certain numbers fail to draw. Just saying.

If you read the earlier article you'll find that it answers most of your questions. Writing a program that chooses particular numbers on a particular day is simple. Since the program's only function would be to draw those numbers on the specified day it wouldn't have any effect at all on the test drawings, which would remain a function of the correct RNG program. Installing it could be as simple as inserting a flash drive, and letting Windows do its usual autoplay to run the executable installation program. If the computer actually has autoplay enabled that's yet another huge failure on the part of MUSL's security protocols. Even if it's a different OS and doesn't have autoplay it's still easy enough to run whatever program is on the flash drive unless steps have been taken to make it difficult.

The only thing difficult is writing a program that's good enough to run at the appointed time, then delete all traces that it ever existed. Simply erasing data is easy, but removing all evidence that the data existed isn't. Of course it may be a lot harder to find that evidence if you don't start looking for it until a year or more after the program deletes itself.

The prosecution's problem won't be proving that it would be a simple thing for somebody with access to install a program that would pick numbers of their choosing. The difficulty will be establishing that it was actually done and that Tipton did it.

    Usually, extradition fights are between countries.  I guess this Texas genius must think Texas is a country all to it's own.  Good luck with that fight, moron; you don't have a leg to stand on.  And good luck with your Iowa troubles; you're headed to the grey bar hotel...

    Actually I was hit by an illegal immigrant in Texas when I was last down there, another story for another day, but I am telling you it is really another country down there. Even the cops who I had to force to come down to the scene of the accident said so. They even referred to it as The Republic of Texas. I thought Texas was kind of normal and like everywhere else until that accident, then I learned not so much. If you drive anywhere near Texas, make sure you have great insurance, I did, I highly recommend Progressive.
