Have you ever wonder if they change the numbers right at the last minute. Why does it take 15 minutes later before the computer pick a number.

Maybe, it is what it is and no one changes it but can you verify.

    Why do computors need to have their numbers changed.?

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      A computer can be set up to cheat you and you would never know about it and couldn't prove it if you did.

      The Dragon Lady loves computers. She brought them to Tennessee. She says it's not healthy to talk about them though.

      A few people who talked about them have come down with Pulverized Head Syndrome.

          Because it has to be certified by an independent accounting firm.

            So they say.

             

            But it comes down to this: You either trust the computers and the people who run them or you don't.

            I don't.

              Todd once wrote that some savvy tech can actually write a program that self destructs once it does it's job, leaving no trace for any auditor. 

              As Much as I hate what the states do with balls and their pre tests and everything else, computers also have their downsides. In a perfect world, they'd leave the machines alone with no pretests and rotations and just draw the feaking balls. If it breaks during the draw, have another one on standby and redo the draw. It's not like the machines break down every week. The reasons they give as to why they do all those things, is a very weak excuse. The overwhelming evidence shows that the main reason is to prevent patterns from forming, plain and simple. I've even read an article years ago in the N.Y. Daily News with an official admitting to it.

                I am still rather new to this board.   Thought I would chime in on this one.  The computer draws I think need to go.   Its to easy to manipulate them even if the thing is certified by an outside audit agency.   Which being a contract thing, if the lottery people that are handling the contract with the outside firm is not doing what they want, the outside auditor will get dropped somehow someway and very quietly.  Its never to hard to find a contractor for government affiliated work.  Another example is slot machines compared to computer draws.  Mind that the chips are different but they all operate under the same principal.  In a casino slots one of the best places to be is next to an entrance, bar, main walkway, etc..., anywhere there is alot of people seeing you win.  Other people see you win and they are more inticed to go for a machine and play more.  Mind you this strategy has gone a little downhill over the years once the statistics came out on this,  But the concept still stands.  If the Random number chip can be manipulated like that then whats keeping them from doing that with a draw in the lottery?  Now this part may be a bit "cry wolf";  I am not entirely familiar with the afternoon drawings here in PA, but I believe those are all computer drawings, and since there is no person there, clock in the background, etc...how do I know that the draw was not done at 12pm and they did not like the number so they did a redraw. 

                 

                I am sure these are the typical arguments out there about the computer draws but after all these questions I only ever heard of someone manipulated the ball draw once.  If I recall once that was discoverd it guy fired, guy sued, guy lost, guy went to jail, and everyone working for the lottery was stripped of being able to play.

                 

                Comparing all the questions with computer opposed to the ball draw. I will trust the ball.  Nothing can be proven with computer draws; ball draws are based on chance and physics.  With the physics factor you immediately have evidance of something wrong or a tamper with the machines. 

                 

                On another front that has no baring on valitaty or not.  With all this go green stuff out in the world, would not a computer eat up more electricity then a simple motor making a fan go round.

                 

                Ok there is my 2 cents.
