I just uploaded up a whoppingingly huge update to the server.  This has been a really painful upgrade because it touched almost every page.

There are so many new big features and small features that it will take some time to see them all.

I did find one more login issue that could have been affecting people, especially those who had their PC crash on them (or something similar) while they happened to be logged in to Lottery Post.  The system would keep showing them as "Guest", even after successfully logging in a million times.  That's fixed now.

The login page (as well as some other pages) also has a new button that makes sure you can only click it once.  (Prevents double-clicking.)

One of my favorite big new features is RSS feeds -- all over the place!!  You can now subscribe to lots and lots of new things -- every forum, the news, comments to news stories, every forum topic that gets posted, active topics (which is the latest posts from every forum combined), as well as the change log.

But my biggest favorite new feature is simplified URLs.

For example, you can now go to any forum topic just by typing www.lotterypost.com/thread/<Thread ID> 

You can go to a forum the same way.  For example, here's the web address of the Pick 3 forum: www.lotterypost.com/forum/3

Results are the same way.  www.lotterypost.com/results/nj for New Jersey results.

If you like the "Top" buttons on the topic pages that bring you to the top in one click, you'll like how the topic pages now have a "bottom" link that does the reverse!

As I said, there are many, many things.  I have been working on this release since ... well, since the last one.  I think it was the difficult nature of many of the changes that has me breathing a sigh of relief.

Enjoy!  (* whew! *)
