Correct you are Mink-Man!

But as I said in my post, doing what you just told me to do is flat out UGLY!  Why am I pressing any function keys? I wanna point and click with my mouse!

My 'problem' with A+ is that it's a software antique.  Pressing the function keys? (F1, F2 F3 etc)  Are you kidding me Gail Howard?  Function keys died with my 1980's DOS PC.  This is a Windows GUI (point and click with a mouse) world!  Get with the times Smart Luck!!  A+ should have been updated YEARS ago to work with The Windows GUI. (Graphical User Interface)

Sure, A+ will tell users what they want to know, but what it makes its users do to get that info should embarrass Gail Howard to tears. I know don't know how Smart Luck is even surviving.  The competitive software available must be killing her.  That Old Geezer G5.

For those reading this that don't have Advantage Plus software from Gail Howard, what I'm talking about is that it runs on your PC in a DOS window.  There is no way you can point and click with your mouse to use the software. 

Once you start A+,  a "DOS Window" opens on your screen and you leave Windows behind until you exit A+.

While you're working with A+,  everything you do is Function Key driven.  Function Keys are those keys at the top of your keyboard labeled "F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7" etc.   When is the last time you used software that used THOSE keys??  It was back in 1986 when you didn't have Windows on your PC and your PC ran DOS!! (Remember that horrific pile of crap?) 

Think /C: on your black and white screen. Then you had to type an arcane command which if you didn't type correctly, would make your PC gave you some kind of idiot error message that made absolutely no sense.  (My personal favorite error message was "File not found")  Ahhhhh... The good old days!

It was The Boy's from Apple and Sir Bill of Gates that gave us point and click (the GUI) and rid the world of evil DOS.  G5

PS  DOS was a "gift" to the world from my former employer, IBM.  IBM also gave you the world's first Personal Computer. Back then, I never heard of something called "The Internet."  IBM put a PC on everybody's desk and told their minions to use it.  Only thing is, we had no idea what the hell it did, or how to use it.  And then there was DOS to contend with.  Then one day, they came out and gave us Word Perfect to to install/use on those DOS PC's we never used.  Except none of us were Secretaries.  We were Techies working on the raised floor (in the Computer Room/data center) working with IBM MVS mainframes.  Just goes to show ya IBM that management didn't know what a PC was good for back then either.  But they had the money in the budget, so they spent it on crap we didnt need and could not use.  That'd never happen these days in IBM!!  Managers hope and pray they even get a budget to spend on idiot ideas that employees cant and wont use!!  My my!  How things have changed. G5

About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

      Well, that's good.... but where the Hell has Smart Luck been for all these years????  They should've released a Windows version of A+ years ago!

      You know what I kinda figured out today Minkster?   I was fool enough to pay Lotto Pro 30 bucks just so I could find out what the six dates were where five numbers were drawn from the same number group!  I mean, I couldn't find out that info using A+, so I bit on Lotto Pro.  Now that I know what dates it happened on, I'm askin' myself this question; "Who gives a shirt?"  I don't.  Do you?  Of course you don't!  And neither does anybody else!

      Urb Kress got me started on that because he wrote in his latest column that it happened five times in the entire history of T5. (And he was WRONG about that too, because he said the last time it happened was on July 18th 2013, when in fact there was a sixth time it happened which was on 12/25/14!)  You think I should send Urb a bill for 30 bucks?  Think he'll pay it if I do??  I don't.  G5

                I got nada last night  but from Psych (for those who were fans) I would like to quote the lines when  Lassiter meets Goochburg 

                Lassiter: How could you possibly be a rookie detective at your you know,advanced age? I passed the test friday.
                Goochburg:I had to sue the department to let me take it again.
                Lassiter: Again? I might have failed it a few times.
                Goochburg : But that's the first thing you're going to learn about me,scarecrow.
                The word "quit" is not in my vocabulary.

                my numbers for tonight:

                01 03 06 27 36

                01 05 06 14 23

                01 07 16 30 38

                03 05 14 16 27

                06 07 16 30 38

                07 23 30 38 36

                14 16 23 27 30

                23 27 30 36 38

                    I dunno 'bout that 28 Mink-Man.

                    It's been missing for 47 drawings which is a record for it.  I've been playing it myself, but I got my doubts as to whether or not were gonna see it pop in February. 

                    It aint much of a hitter either.  All time in T5, it's ranked 28th with 814 hits.  But in 2014 it didn't do half-bad with 49 hits, which is fairly decent.  So I dunno what it's gonna do.

                    None of the columnists in Lotto News included it in their pick's.  Maybe that's enough of a reason right there for me to play it.  Contrarian that I am.... I've never been one to run with The Thundering Herd.  "Conventional wisdom" usually isn't wisdom at all.  I always got a huge kick out of rejecting the majority's opinion.

                    And I might add, that for being a contrarian, I gained a reputation where I used to work as being a "Maverick", or a "Wild Duck" and  even a "Loose cannon." (I knew you especially would get a kick out of that one!)  When it all it really amounted to was some managers that I knew hated being told the truth.  They much preferred Political Correctness.  Problem was, I wasn't too big on lying.  Still aint to this very day too. G5

                      Did you know that The Old G5'er has three adult children?

                      Yup.  Three.  A boy and two girls.  Now my son, he's in the U.S. Coast Guard and he's doing just fine.  My younger daughter is a college student and she'll graduate next May.  She's doing fine too.

                      Then there's The Old G5'ers older daughter.  She's a mathematician.  Graduated from college in 2012 with a degree in math.  She lives and works in Manhattan.  And she thinks she's smarter than her Old Man.

                      Now I suppose you're wondering why The Old G5'er is bothering to tell you all this good stuff about his personal life.  Well, that older daughter of mine (the mathematician) is buggin' me to death.  See, she and I don't see eye to eye about how random the lottery is or isn't. 

                      One day not too long ago, she said to me "Any given combination has an equal chance of being drawn as any other combination and that's a fact that you'll never change!  And, the odds are the odds!  You can't improve your odds, all you can do is buy more chances of winning, but the odds will never change, and YOU dear father, try as you might, can do absolutely NOTHING about that!"  (If I'd have known that she was gonna use that college degree of hers against me while I was fightin' with her, I'd sure as hell wouldn't have paid for it!) 

                      So I asked that smart-alec how come there's only been six times in the entire history of Take5 that five numbers from the same number group have been drawn?  I mean, there's been 6500+ drawings and only six times has that happened!  Why is that?  Yeah, there sure is 575,757 possible combo's, but why has there never been a drawing where five numbers in sequence have been drawn?  Why hasn't 1 2 3 4 5 been drawn if it has the same chance as any other of those 575,756 combos to be drawn?

                      Do you know what her answer was to that question?  You'd never guess, but it was...

                      "It'll happen someday."   

                      SEZ YOU! Ya punk KID!   25 years old and knows it all!   She inherited it all from her MOTHER!  There aint a single drop of my DNA in her entire body.   G5

                              Another FP for me.  I figured out why I've hit so many this month, and the reason why isn't simply because I've been playing numbers from Lotto News/Stats.  No doubt they've helped me, but I think there's a second reason why I've hit as many as I have.

                              Each and every time I've played in February, I played one repeater on each of my lines, and also one number  from the night before lasts drawing.  (hit/skip/hit)  Believe it or not, playing like that pays off.  There was no repeater last night, but both the 10 and the 12 were one skips.  I had the 12 along with 19 which gave me the FP.

                              IMHO, the 10 and the 12 were "free numbers", and that all I have to do is get lucky enough to pick 2 more winning numbers on the same line and I'd have a three bagger.   I've also won FP's where I had a repeater and a one skip on the same line. In a case like that, all I need do is pick one more winning number for a three bagger, and if I got lucky enough to pick 2 winning numbers on that same line.........

                              Too bad I've never been lucky enough to have ever gotten two "free numbers" on the same line and put two more (or dare I say three more ) winning numbers with it!  G5

                              About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!
