I knew there was something strange going on here today. It was sluggish. I dumped my cookies and still had loading problems.

So far, so good now. Thanks!

        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.

                          The blue menu bar is a beautiful thing!!!  It was missing on the home page, search  page, daily topics and several others.  I was about to go bonkers thinking that FireFox was the problem.... my son was about to get a call to come over and fix the problem.   Now this morning all is well and thanks to you, I am a happy camper.  I appreciate you big time... thank you, thank you, thank you!
