    I have FOUND and FIXED the problems that have been causing Lottery Post to run slowly and erratically.

    Ever since the last major site update I have been baffled by the site's strange behavior.  The CPU usage on the server was skyrocketing, processor threads were becoming tied up, and the whole site would slow down and then crash.

    This was probably one of the most challenging bugs I've ever had to fix on the site.  You don't know how something like this can tear at a person, knowing that there is something wrong, and with no clues on how to track it down.

    I have been trying to fix this thing for over 72 hours, and probably amassed 6 or 7 hours of sleep over that time.  (Coffee helps.)

    I do apologize to everyone who has been affected by the problems, and I'm relieved to report that they should not be bothering you further.  In fact, I think the site is a little better now that I have gone through it attempting to make everything I could find more efficient, in the hopes of finding the bug.

    I noticed that it was taking its time replying etc.  I knew you would be on it!

    Well done!!

        Thanks all for the nice comments!

        I just fixed the Firefox bug, which caused the menu bar to shrink as you mouse over it.  The fix should automatically install itself, with no need to clear your cache.

                    Thanks Todd.

                    I'm always afraid that some crazy would happen and the site would disappear.

                    That would not be a good thing.

                    I'm happy your on the job but sorry that your losing sleep over it.

                    Thanks again.

                      Great job problem solving Todd and much respect to your stick-to-it doggedness.

                      Legend says that The Craggy One was once asked about the Lottery Circle and the aged Lottery LoreKeeper whispered in his gravelly eloquence,"It is known among our kind that 2 successive draws are in reality the 2 center-points of 2 intersecting circles that share a common radius - a Root Center. This Vesica Piscis is the creative womb for all numbers, the Still Point from which two draws will unite & a new one is born. This "perfect" space is a wormhole through Time(Change). Master its proportions & your numerical predictions will not falter".
