Hello,

Ok, please forgive me for asking this... Just please...

I have platinum membership since yesterday and played with DEFLATE tool.

Can somebody please explain what it does..? Does it select the hottest numbers...?

And what are the tiers? Is the 1st tier the last or the first...?  Oogle

Thank you,

Derek

    The bottom of the Deflate page has a long, detailed description -- did you check it out?

      I kind of did. Though I am still not sure about tiers and if I should input my numbers or recently drawn ones.

      I mean: which ones do I WANT to input...

      I appreciate your patience...

        It's just a tool, like a calculator is a tool.  There is no "right" way to use it.  The important thing is to understand how it work (what it does to a set of number you input), and then you can figure out where it makes sense to apply it.

        Some people like to Deflate lots of predictions posted on the boards.

        Some people like to Defalte past drawing results.

        Some people have other software that generates numbers, and then they Defalte those numbers.

        ...And on and on.

        It is the process of taking a large set of numbers and quickly pulling out of it what the commonalities are.

        Of course the real advanced power comes when you also apply filters.  There are detailed instructions for what each filter does, so they are self-explanitory.  However, choosing what filters make sense for what you are trying to do is something you'll need to experiment with.

        It's a tool that you will never stop learning new ways to use it.

          Deflate according to some people is when you pass wind.ROFL

          You should try the Alternate system too.

          Less cumbersome.

            Winner1313, you remind me of a fellow I met while serving in the military at Soc Trang, Vietnam.  He asked me if I could direct him to the "room of comfort" and I thought he meant the library since it was the only place with air conditioning on the whole compound.  I finally knew what he meant when he said "sh**house".  Apparently "rest room" in his native language translated to "room of comfort" in nice English.  Similarly "pass wind" also means "fart" in regular English.

              OK, I think I get it. I will do some tests and check it out.

              Thanks!

                Derek:

                Congratulations on your Platinum Membership.  I predict you'll love it.

                My predictions usually aren't all that great, but I'd put money on this one.

                It's about number behavior.

                  DEFLATE, in my opinion, is a great tool when your dealing with a TON of numbers from various resources. It allows you to reduce the list to something you can manage and easily categorize into clear and concise groups. My favorite, when I am doubting my spreadsheet, is to DEFLATE & INSPECT all of the numbers on the prediction page with a single click. This then helps me see what all of the folks online are thinking, allowing me to focus better on what I should be looking at.

                  Hope you great fortune.
