We're Rich!

Late last week, in a fit of boredom, I wrote a program to produce lottery numbers. The idea behind the program is that if the numbers are as random as possible and we win the jackpot we're slightly less likely to have to share it with anyone. (I think the logic is correct although I never completed my Stats A-level so I can't be sure.)

We used it to pick numbers in Saturday's lottery and guess what, we won ... $21!! Including Mac's contribution, we bet $10 but that's still over a 100% profit. I have high expectations of winning the $15,000,000 jackpot on Wednesday. If it comes through for us, expect a posting here by the guy I hire to write my blog for me.

I put the program on my site and then decided the site needed an overhaul and that's mostly what I've been doing ever since. I've got quite proficient at CSS as a result.

Daniel and Jim came to visit on Saturday to drop off the last of the baby shower presents and to get the rest of the stuff on the registry. We now have everything a baby needs plus a tonne of other stuff Heather thinks he needs. She just now remembered he doesn't have a pair of sun glasses.

Looks like another trip to Target...
