    I am happy to report that I have found and fixed the bug, so now anyone with a space in their username can access the Vtracs page.

        Todd,

        I tried clicking on MO, and there was no link.  There is a part in the instructions that says, "you may view the past results for a                  state by clicking on the state name."  I am able to view MO from the 1st of March, but can't click any where but the calendar.  Thanks!

          Thanks Todd,

          This is terrific!!!  I was printing out the page daily and adding the vtracs by hand, so this is just great.

            Please read my post above:  ...But PLEASE ... keep in mind that there is a LOT more to add, like results history, and other stuff....

              Todd,
              On the Vtrac Result Page, I've tried to Select just the table of States and Results to print - but it won't let me (so that I don't have to print the entire screen of info).    I do this on the Regular Results page - print it off (just the Selected Table of States and Results) and then do my VTRAC conversion on the side.     Why doesn't it work on the VTRAC Result Page?

                Good news for people who use Vtracs:

                I have just added the complete drawing history for all games in the USA and Canada.

                Now, you can click any state and see the Vtracs for all the state drawings.

                It includes the feature that lets you turn the actual drawing results on / off.

                  I can't even imagine how hard it must have been! 

                  Glad you got it up! 

                  Something that useful should really encourage premium membership.

                  As to protecting your code, you are right.  This is the internet.  Did you explore various things to deter people from copying your code?  There are the usual javascript tricks.  MS has encryption software (which has been cracked).  Putting things server side.  And other things that I am not aware of.  After all, not everyone with a web site is a guru.  Like putting a couple of locks on your doors, they'll keep most people out of your house.

                  Vtracs: the other side of the coin...while many are using Vtracs already, there are plenty of members that never tried it and don't know how.  Also there is the question of new members that haven't even heard the term Vtracs before.  Shouldn't there be a 20 time free trial, similar to the deflate pages?  As it stands right now, we can't even peek inside.

                  Thanks Todd.

                      Good point about the no "free trial" thing.  I'll need to do something about that.

                      As for protecting the code, it's not something that anyone (but me) has the ability to access, since it resides in SQL Server and in ASP.NET code on the web server and database server.  The only thing rendered to the page is the actual results, not any kind of code.
