I have cutover to the new Lottery Post web site.  For those enjoying all the enhancements, enjoy!  For those hating life, I think you'll come to change your mind.

For both, hang in there, and please be patient with any gitches that take place.  I'll work hard to fix them.

        By the way, anyone experiencing any MAJOR problems, don't say I didn't tell you so.

        I've been saying for two days to try the new site out, so if things are a little strange, you did not tell me.  All the input I have gotten is very minor complaints - each of which I have fixed already.

        One thing to try: CLEAR YOUR BROWSER CACHE.

          I went to the results then latest Lottery Results, but can't get them at all.

          Also here this editor lags behind, is slow.

          Other problems moving around the site too mostly at the beginning, but this editor being slow, I am not used to that, is hard to correct text like that.

            Results pages are fixed now.



               

            Correct about slow-going the first time you pull up a page - esp. on a dial-up line. That goes away the next time you visit a page, so no big deal.



               The editor naturally will perform faster on a more modern PC, just like a word processor.

              If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

                  Yeah, clearing the cache worked great. Thanks.

                    Only thing I seem to be having a problem with is the link coming into Outlook Express which opens an IE window to either a subscription notification or a PM.  It hangs and simply won't load, but figure that's something which will be corrected in time. 

                    Other than that minor issue love the new site, most of all being able to post HTML from Firefox!!  That's worth any tiny glitch that may arise. 

                    Thanks much for all your hard work!!

                    Good luck to everyone!

                      Great work Todd

                      The only thing I see today is on the main page on the amount of post in each forum. in the pick 3 the last digit of the amount of post is about half buried.

                      The same on the pick thee forum on sign the petition the last digit is partly buried

                      I am at max screen right and left.

                      No big deal but wanted to bring to your attention.

                      MAGA

                        John,

                        Make sure your video is set to at least 800 x 600.  Lottery Post does not function very well at a resolution less than that - because of the amount of info that is packed onto each page.

                        To do this, right-click any blank portion of the windows background (desktop), and you should get a popup menu.  Select Properties.  The click the Settings tab.  You will see a slider control labeled "Screen resolution".  It should be at least 800 x 600, but 1024 x 768 is even better (if you have at least a 17-inch monitor).
