    IF, and that is *IF*, your automation is looking for something of value.

    So far, for what I look for, there is no easy way to automate what I can look at on my spreadsheet and see in 30 seconds.

    I'd share, but I have NO CLUE anymore about the rules of PM'ing on this website, I am members of dozens of other site, and none of them have the bans in place this one does.  I see notes for 'new members' regarding posting, I am not a 'new member', but still, I can't figure out what I can share privately and what I cannot, with regards to my e-mail address and outside web URL's (mine), so my data goes nowhere.

    For automating creativity itself, I'm not at that level yet. LOL

    I meant using a macro as a means of ungarbling data, and even then the data has to be somewhat "regular" in its garbling.

    As for as examining the data, if I can describe the procedure in rules/steps and none of those steps involve how a set of numbers "look" or "feel" at the moment -- eventually, I can automate the process.

    In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
    Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

      The problem will then become: you will still have too many numbers to choose from.

      Not saying you are: but some folks seem to think they can develop a system to give them ALL the winning numbers - just five of them.

      It doesn't work that way, I have a great 'system', but it only narrows it down to about 20 numbers, and even that isn't 100% perfect.

      I tried telling folks here 'we have four numbers from the 50's that have not hit in 35+ games, that it was odd we had four. Two is normal, four is not'. I also said somewhere of those four, two were 'even' and two were 'odd', and my calculations were an 'odd' one would hit, and it did, and I got it. But that's only one number.

        That's been the problem from the beginning, but I think things have improved.

        My system takes a different tack from yours, though. I haven't had much success in the way of dropping a bunch of specific numbers. That's not to claim that one approach is better than the other, though.

          I like your last sentence, I agree with it 100%.

          While no 'system' is that good (or everyone would be using it by now), every system has its' nuances that will get you 2-3-4 numbers once in awhile. I call that 'luck'.
