It's pretty cool watching this many people hammer Lottery Post and USA Mega at the same time.  It's good to see the site still up & running -- even as the Powerball website is dead in the water, and most other state sites are in bad shape.

Of course, we had the PB results posted at USA Mega and Lottery Post within 5 minutes of the drawing.  (Patting own back.)

              I know the message when you go to powerball.com is that the site has been removed or has been moved to another address.  Half the nation is probably trying to get the numbers right now from that site.

                I personally get a kick out of seeing that error message at powerball.com - and then I go to www.usamega.com and check out the results!  He, he, he!

                  It's amazing ... I'm watching a real-time monitor of web traffic hitting the web server right now, and it has been a tremendous steady stream of traffic ever since 11:00.  Usually it lets up about 25 minutes after the drawing, but I think the Powerball site problems are keeping people going to USA Mega instead.  (That's where they should have gone in the first place!)

                      No, just check the front page for that.  But it's close.

                      Most traffic is hitting USA Mega.  (For obvious reasons.)

                        any word on whether or not it was hit yet?

                        I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                          After being a member here for just a short while, its been a habit that the place to get almost instant results is the USA mega site! Thank you Todd for keeping both  sites UP, whilst the state sites are getting a licking and aint quite ticking!

                          My hats off to all the winners and players that contributed to the recent upsurge in Powerball sales.
