Yep, I did read that, but again, I'm not sure I'll bother. Same thing will happen. My internet seriously sucks. Just 3 days ago, I rented a movie to stream on Amazon. and it happens every time. I always get a refund on whatever I paid to rent because my internet sucks. I get an email from Amazon saying "we noticed you experienced poor play back on your amazon video......... we are refunding your money" LOL it's not on their end. It's definetly on mine and my crap internet. but every single time we rent a movie from them I get a refund. Sucks the worst during Hockey season when I try to stream my beloved Philadelphia Flyers games.

. . . I promised my kids over the summer I would look into a better internet . . .
If either of you has a Starbucks nearby (or any other place with free, secure WiFi, next time (July Giveaway) try going there with your laptop, tablet or phone and accessing the Lottery Thread at the faster speed.

Adam tweaked the rules a bit so there are four times rather than two and the thread accepts 75 posts rather than only 50.

Oh but you have... you have won the unconditional friendship here of the members of this forum, myself included.

Oh btw... I'm still subscribed to that "silvery tongued devil" course you recommended I took, how am I doing?

The final rush to qualify and the wait for getting drawn is so much easier if you don't want the K 1 and you don't bother


I thought about trying and then selling the camera if I got it but then I thought that wasn't the intent of the contest so I didn't and won't

I don't do math but I am told we are on pace, actually a little bit ahead of pace, to get 55,000 posts this month

Your goal requires that we be at 9.17% {6.67x55/40} by the end of today.

You don't have to.
Bert did at least 100 posts per day for a couple of weeks - but it was so close that on June 28th half of the guesses were that we would fall short.
For the first two days of this month, we are way ahead of the first two days in June - so everyone could relax {don't! .... not everyone at once!} and we'd still reach the target .

This time is for real.

.....I never win anything anyway, so it's better someone else be in who would have better odds. However, just wanted to say. I haven't been on the forums in a long time before this contest started and it's been fun posting and reading and viewing all the photos again! So, maybe I'll try for another entry... maybe I'll just leave it for someone else. But I'm glad to be back around here reading and learning.

Good luck to all who go in.
