I wish there was a "60 Day" option in "Date Range to Search" under "Search Past Results".  When trying to decide how far back to go to search for some number or pattern of numbers  in back testing, I usually prefer a shorter range of past results rather than a longer range.  In my opinion, 1 year is too far back to give an accurate  predictable forecast of expected numbers to come for the present moment in time, unless you are playing Straight.  If you are playing Boxed, I've discovered that a shorter range backward works better than a longer range backwards.  30 days might be too short, and 90 days might be too long.  Thus, 60 days seems like the ideal time range within which to search for past results for Future BOXED play.

      In addition it would be good if their was a 14 Day Search as well as the current 7 Day Search!
