What a painful upgrade I have been going through today!

I'm sure that with all the instability of the site, you all are experiencing a bit of that pain, so you have my apologies for the issues.

I think things may have gotten stable enough that I can take a break and remind everyone to clear their web browser cache.

There is a lot of new code (and code changes) that I implemented today, so if you don't clear your browser cache, your web browser may get confused -- by looking at both new code and old code that it has stored internally.

Here is a help topic for those who need assistance with clearing their cache:

http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/104958

I'll probably blog about some of the changes later, because many of them will not be readily apparent.  It's all for a good cause though.  Good things are on the way.

      Thanks Todd,

      If a part of what you have done makes pages load faster it is working on my computer. My pages use to load a bit slow.

        Page load times are a very tricky thing to tweak.  It is a delicate balance between lots of functionality and something that downloads quickly.  And there are infinite techniques that a developer can try to "cheat" the amount of time it takes to download a page.

        My goal is one of continual improvement.  I am making small changes to the code all the time.  Those changes happen on my development environment, not on the live site, so when I do an update like this, you may be seeing changes that I've been working on, and building upon, for two or three weeks -- or longer. 

        I'll be coming out with some nice innovations very soon -- not just for the web site.  Stay tuned!

            Thanks Todd. 

            One thing people with Internet Explorer may want to check with Intenet Explorer open :

            Tools_Internet Options _ General_ Temporary Internet Files_ Settings_ Check for newer versions of stored pages: make sure  automatically is checked.

            If never is checked you definitely need to clear your cache.

                      Thanx Todd,

                      I have this cool, free tool called "Be Clean". It does a whole host of cleaning in about 90 seconds.

                      It cleans the registry, internet cache, history,temp files, start menu, desktop,recycle bin, and others. It leaves the cookies alone.

                      Saves a lot of time by not having to do them seperately. In most cases, it shows a cleansing of about 600 files, and about 50 registry entries. Sometimes when my computer is bogged down, and I run the cleaner, those numbers above are nearly quadrupled.

                        I did another huge round of upgrades today (Sunday), so I'd highly recommend clearing your cache once again.

                        A shortcut, if you experience a script error on a page, is to simply hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard as you press the F5 (or Refresh) button.

                          Todd, from the link in the OP:

                           
                          Firefox 2.x Browser

                           Here's how to clear your cache with Firefox 2.x browser:
                          - Choose "Clear Private Data..." from the Tools menu
                          - In the box that pops up, make sure "Cache" has a checkmark next to it.
                          - Make sure "Cookies" does NOT have a checkmark next to it, or you will get logged out from Lottery Post.
                          - Click the "Clear Private Data Now" button."

                          _____________________________________

                           I don't see anything at all like that in Firefox. 

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                            I'm sure if the LP instructions are not adequate, Firefox has its own help screens to show you how.
