Apologies for this inconvenience.

Kind regards,

    Thanks Carbob, I wish Ricky had announced this publicly. I was just about to ask what happened? There is not even an announcement on the lotteryusa website.

     

    Anyway thanks and I hope Ricky gets this worked out ASAP. I cannot function without LotSoft. Ricky, all the best.

        DC (E) results are incorrect for 3 days: the 417 on Jun 11th did not repeat  on 12th, 13th and 14th.

             Yeap... me as well. Same 3 days. Should we perform force overwrite for all states?

             

             

            The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                                          Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                                          Odds never change .....but probability does.

                  I don't recommend that for a particular reason. WIND I tried to pm you....your box is full

                   

                  Anyway if you have corrected past histories manually ( as I have had to on several occassions--it happens it's probably not Ricky's fault), then forcing an overwite brings back errors you corrected if they have not been corrected in the online histories.

                    Should have mentioned that was Ricky's instruction.

                      Carbob what is Ricky's instruction--to force overwite or to do a manual as I suggested?

                       

                      Why I do a manual in such cases is simple but very important.

                      In working on a couple of states' past histories I picked up a few errors in the databases. I manually corrected them....if the corrections were not made in the online histories then overwring brings back the errors I corrected.

                      If you have not manually corrected the histories and/or the longterm accuracy of past drawings are unimportant to you then force overwrite.

                      If you have manually corrected past histories DO NOT OVERWRITE.

                         Thanks ..... Guess I'll give it a try then. Sure hope it doesn't bring back old corrections. Thats like work or something..... and with my win rate lately.... it's unpaid work !  LOL  

                         Has anyone else had a situation like mine ....as an example...   for a long time now my data output window (bottom right) on the shortsums page is so faint .....I have to copy paste it to get the numbers  to show up against the faint back ground.  Otherwise, I can hardly tell they are there.  Funny its not on all things ....just some of the output window numbers. I haven't changed monitors or anything and have tried the obvious adjustments.

                         One other thing.... have you ever noticed after an update is performed .... you must shut down the program and restart....or it will give a different draw history....other than your own state?

                          Hmmm sure it's not the colors on yr monitor? Mine (shortsums output) has a light purple background. The font is kinda close to the bg color so on some monitors it probably could present a problem.  Mine is legible enough.

                              Just remember there is no way to select which states you overwrite---everything is overwritten (up to a point) I hope Ricky can implement a selective update/overwrite feature in the next version. LottoBuster has that capability I think.
