    When the file "testpb.doc" comes up, if you want to save it where you can find it later click "save" and you can see or chose where it's being saved and you can open it later with WordPad or some other text editor.

    If you just "open" it, it will download to a temporary file so you can read it immediately using WordPad but it will be hard to find in your temporary files and it may be deleted later automatically when your computer runs some maintenance programs.

        Your computer must works differently than mine, I'm running WindowsXP.  When I click the red ball the File Download box pops up with three options "Open", "Save" and "Cancel".  "Run" is not an option.

                People don't generally discuss with much detail the test games publicly.

                  You're OK, don't worry.  I personally think there should be MORE discussion publicly about pre-test data.  It should not be hidden -- as if the lottery can FORCE the pre-tests to do something different.

                  By shining a bright light on pre-test data, interested players could help nudge the states into providing the pre-test data openly on their web sites, rather than keeping the data hidden -- like most states do.

                  Why shouldn't they offer the info freely?  From an objective standpoint, it could only improve the openness of the whole process and show the games' fairness.

                   

                  Check the State Lottery Report Card
                  What grade did your lottery earn?

                    I Agree! Yeah what's the big deal?  Unless you work for the lottery, or have something to hide.  I think it is interesting and informative to say the least. jarasan

                        can you break it down a little more, per line like....

                        are the first five the white balls?    then what?

                          That's o.k.  I got 'em figured out....

                          I'm not seeing much that helps me, ...so in a way it helps me, because I might forget they even existed,

                          It's o.k. to know they're, there somewhere though.

                            When the file "testpb.doc" comes up, if you want to save it where you can find it later click "save" and you can see or chose where it's being saved and you can open it later with WordPad or some other text editor.

                            If you just "open" it, it will download to a temporary file so you can read it immediately using WordPad but it will be hard to find in your temporary files and it may be deleted later automatically when your computer runs some maintenance programs.

                            The first time I looked at the file it was missing some of the headers. The numbers were all there, but nothing to tell what some of them meant. That's because I hadn't installed Word on this machine, so the program opened in Wordpad. I use wordpad for about 98% of my word processing, but it won't handle some of the formatting that may be included in a Word document. If anyone has any trouble, save it like RJ says, but open it with Word if you have a copy.

                            If your computer will open it directy from the link you can still save it from the file menu in Word.
