Love the smoothness and extra touch ups. I have several browsers but I must say Google Chrome is the best for Lottery Post.

I agree about Google Chrome.  I even blogged about it last month.

However, after using the new IE9 beta, I may change my mind.  It's that good.

      Checked out IE 9 but I know Im gonna stick with Chrome. Its something about IE.....I hate the way add-ons are managed as opposed to chrome, maybe its my perception but IE seems slow, you cant recover windows when the IE crashes, and I have "Turn-off-the-lights". Doesnt get any better than that plus the pin-tab works like a charm. Cant wait to see Chrome updates. Dont mean to get off topic but it seems like just 7 years ago I had a COMPAQ. lol. How times have changed.

        @ Todd

        When clicking on a person's screen name and choosing "View recent posts" - it seems to continue to search and never produces the list.

        Is it me (IE8) or is it due to the latest programming?  I haven't come across any other errors here.

        I can use the LP search and do not have a problem seeing recent posts, that way.

          It is working on IE8, because I'm looking at it right now.  I'd suggest clearing your cache and see if that helps.  Or when you get to the page do a hard refresh by pressing Ctrl+F5.

            Those are all good reasons, and they are some reasons why I personally changed over to Chrome.  I really like that browser a lot.  I saw that IE9 is doing many of the same things now, and it's really good, even though it's still a beta.  For example, crashed tabs now come immediately back, like in Chrome.  I had it happen to me and I was like "whoa." 

            But one thing is for sure: I don't think IE will ever have updates happen as often or as smoothly as Chrome.  Google is able to automatically get nearly its entire user base upgraded to the latest version within days, it's amazing.  I like that they basically force the updates to happen.

                Most Excellent Job Sir Todd. So far everything for me is working smooth.

                I also d-loaded and am currently kicking the tires on the Google Chrome, since it came with such Rave Reviews.

                Thanks again Sir.

                  Yes, if you only knew what I've been going through to keep the site up this week, you'd be amazed.  I have been struggling not only to cope with the changes that have been installed on the site this week, but also with some massive security holes that were discovered this past weekend in the Microsoft technology that drives the site.  There's just one person (me) who is trying to deal with all of these things simultaneously.  I wish I had a big budget and IT staff to help out, but I don't.

                    Thanks for the update and the hard work.  It thought it was the local server or the network.

                      To everyone who encountered the popup menu problem, especially on the My Favorites page, that problem should be 100% fixed now.  The problem also happened on the Recent Posts pages, the Event Calendar page, and on the two Lucky's systems.

                        Oh how my eyes deceived me. As long as I dont know I have been using the Deflate 3. I continued to scroll down to get to business  time after time. Only to see Hide this Introduction permanently. Wow, learn something new everyday.

                              Just fixed another bug that affected IE users running Windows XP.  Most people noticed it when the Recent Posts page refused to finish loading.  Vista and Windows 7 users most likely did not encounter this, only XP users.  (Probably why I missed it.)  I tracked down and fixed the bug, so it should not be happening anymore.
