Is there an updated version 3.0?

Last version was 2.0

    You might try the Internet Archive WayBack Machine...  You just enter WinnaLotto and get dozens of hits from:

    http://winnalotto.co.za/ and http://winnalotto.onyxsa.co.za/

    Seems the docs and program lite are available for download...

    And for those paranoid folks try Windows Sandbox...

      I think there's a song about paranoid people.
      Something about if you're paranoid then you're useless and if you're useless.....

      You can't be used!

      Safe online stuff to make sure scammers, spammers, sock puppets, and "others" don't get access to your computer. 

      So Ima choose "Useless" when Google says, "will not connect."
      And when Facebook says, "You don't want to go there," Ima be Useless. 

      I choose to not be USED!
      Only scammers, spammers, and users would disagree with being safe. 

      But y'all go right on......I ain't stopping anybody.

        Try

        http://onyxsa.co.za/winnalotto/online_manual/index.html?columns.htm

        You should really not attempt to connect to any site that is using http: protocol versus a secure connection using https: protocol.  If they have not updated their site to use secure connections (Let's Encrypt is free) you probably don't want to go there anyway.

          Does anyone know what sandboxing and/or virtualization is???  How about instances of guest operating systems...

          For the paranoid among us, these are easy ways to have a toss-away system environment to run weird stuff in and easily delete everything when done or something goes wrong...  Then boot back into your favorite standard safe system/environment...  No harm done to your comfort zone...  Or favorite computer...

            Seems you are being challenged more than those who choose to be safe..... 
            You make the comments "paranoia and comfort zone" as if those are negative traits. 

            But those are the comments someone who wants you to do something that you wouldn't ordinarily do, would make.

            There is nothing negative about having boundaries and being safe online.
            And it has no bearing on your "comfort zone" if people choose not to do what you ask. 

            When it comes to "do what I say/ask," or be considered paranoid or "harm done to your comfort zone," I trust two people. 

            Me. And the other one ain't you..........(or anyone else who insists I need to do something to please them).

              There are different qualities of secure connection.  I can have one just by adding a code to the htaccess file that tells G ownership has been verified.  The problem with https is some http features stop working, so site owners have to pick one or the other.  Now if the site takes no information from the visitor and does not sell anything directly or need an order form filled out, etc. it doesn't need a SSL Certificate.

                Sometimes things work better without SSL. They introduced it and there were no instructions. The differences with javascript were not told. Only one short message reached me about it, and I don't tell you. You had to come up with that before me. First here I was told that I was a liar. Appears that I'm not.

                  You don't need SSL to show an htm(l) file or pure text.

                  There is the browser and how this program works and uses the String.

                  You also don't need CSS and JS. Most of the time you can do without that and without ads.

                    I read the documentation and I read the online manual as well (use winnalotto manual to search in google)

                    But still not know the meaning of certain column information e.g.

                    N+x>=H - The percentage based on the formula, # of times current skip value has occurred before it

                    turned.

                     

                    What is N, x and H stand for i.e. which column they refer to ? And Rebalance, what does it mean ? get close to median and get away from median ?? And so as the simple, basic, detail which refer to N + x >= H

                    Thats why I am looking for a more detail documentation.

                      ReBalance - An indication whether the ball will rebalance itself.

                      they refer to, N, x and H refer to what value/column ? Rebalance mean get away and get close to median ??? The manual not mention such stuff.

                              Gary, You can read anything you want into what I said above...  Sandboxing and Virtualization are pretty standard methods of securing systems for many years now...  Micro$soft even offers a free Sandbox for just such a purpose...  The information I gave was in no way telling anyone what they should or should not do...  Do you own due diligence...  Or not...  We all do what we are comfortable doing...  Some of us keep exploring and learning different points of view...

                              Have a wonderful day...
