I have a program where the live update is not working from the site it is pulling from.  Contacting the administrator have been futile.  Is is possible that I can buy a live update to work with my program.  I have access to the  identifiers where they can be changed.

      Never mind everybody, I got a reply with what the problem is.  I still would like to know what my options are.

          I agree, but with a question:

          Is this lottery related ?

            The only two options that I see are:

            Entering the draws by hand or importing them from a file.

            As I said before, the web site and or updates might not be there forever.

            Do you see how much trouble is entering the draws by hand with that antique system that the program uses?

            There are easier ways of entering draws, but that program is stuck with that antique system.

            I have some ideas that would have a good chance of solving the problem of updating the draws for all the states without having to update them from the program's site, but it would need changes to the program.

            But I am through with that programmer.

            Good luck.

            EXCALIBUR is no more that "Handle" is dead, gone.
            Maybe sometime in the future I might come back as LANTERN again, but maybe not, if I don't come back as LANTERN in the future then I won't come back at all, but as I said there is no more EXCALIBUR.

              Through with that programmer, Fernando? I don't understand.

                I am just making a guess, but I think that I know which program Janet is talking about, so therefore I am also guessing that I know who is it's programmer and it is over between me and any programmers other than sysp34.

                EXCALIBUR is no more that "Handle" is dead, gone.
                Maybe sometime in the future I might come back as LANTERN again, but maybe not, if I don't come back as LANTERN in the future then I won't come back at all, but as I said there is no more EXCALIBUR.
