I work the nightshift and I watched the local news.  They said that the mega million officials can't be sure if anyone won!!  Tell me,  do you smell CHEATING??  I can't remember this ever happening before at least not up to 7 hours later.  This is crazy.

        the networks  they have at present had more sells then ever befor

        "the 2000 network was diff network"

        it was a big test for it

        am sure it rolled

        but if there any software, network data error's

         

        then good lord.....................

        , the 470m or likly higher half billion jackpot going to not olny create errors

        it over blast apart the network along with it.

        it bring  the admins of the networks to crying likly. lol

         

        such a shame

        i worder how pb networks could handle the same stress under all these sells

        someone contact pb admins

        the mega million admins need help asap

        lmao

        in all frankness

        am sure they have everthing cleared up by today. 

        as a IT guy i really want to see how they run there networks and share all the data

        that or upgrade there servers  , not like they cant buy the top end of the server markets offering

        i mean really......................................................

          From what I have seen, Ohio's computer went down at 10:25 last night, and they have said it may be later today before they know anything. That's in the Detroit news from an AP report. I am SO ANXIOUS!

            Looks like megamillions.com is down... maybe they are FINALLY about to post an update!

             

            EDIT: So is valottery.com - they are hosted together, I think.

                My guess is the Mega Millions site is "down" because everyone on the east coast is waking up and now is desperately trying to find out if there were any winners and they are overloaded!!!!  Even our great site of Lottery Post last night had some problems due to the heavy traffic (nothing neagtive aimed at you Todd) just the shear amount of traffic can overwhelm the system.

                Good luck and have a Disney Day ºoºHiding Behind Computer

                    I have a feeling Megamillions is delaying the announcement to maximize coverage on the morning news shows.  Any announcement will be covered live by all the networks.

                      This is horse manure.  Why haven't they updated yet?  The suspense is uncalled for.

                        Ohio's computer system shut down last night.....they have to wait to verify those tickets as well so that is probably what the hold up is.

                          I just saw on Local 4 (Detroit) that two winners were sold - one in GA and the other in NJ. Have no idea as to verifiability.

                            I don't know if this counts as official information or not, but the highway billboards in our area that show the Mega Millions jackpot have now changed from $370 million to $12 million.  I fear our jackpot has been won by someone.

                              They just announced two winners, one in Georgia and one in Jersey.
