Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

I think I've found a bug in the Bits Lotto ticketing system.
After purchasing a bunch of tickets (around 100 or so) in the 100 bit lotto, it has started occasionally buying me a 1000 bit ticket instead of the 100 bit ticket I want. As I get more and more 100 bits tickets, the frequency of it getting confused has been increasing.

I've tried this in firefox and ie and observed the same effect.

Bug?

Where can I see which Lotto numbers I've bought and what Lotto Numbers won?

You can see the last winning number if the last winner was the prior drawing period. Otherwise, you can't see the historical numbers, sorry.

Also, currently, if you want to keep track of the ticket numbers you have, you must do it manually. We would have to alter the code to add this feature.

thought I'd poke my head in here, been working on some updates for the core systems you guys use for "bits" nice to see how you guys are using it here.

Thanks for stopping by.

To be frank, our advisory team is considering dropping the "Bits" feature from our site. It is a nice feature, but we are not seeing an overall benefit versus maintaining, upgrading the plug in code base. The code base requires too much modification to meet our user requirements and the add-ons that create more value are encrypted PHP code which we do not run as a site policy, for a variety of reasons.

Recently, we have replace the "user awards for a post" with the "thank you" feature, which is generally better, our users have commented.

Since we have installed this system we have seen little tangible benefit for users, and may drop this from the site in the near future, after receiving forum user comments.

Well, I think what the "Bits" and "bank account" is on your user profile makes you reminds the things around your bank account. It reminds or updated you what had happened on it.
