    A couple of hours before Saturday's maintainance, I checked the Magincia plots and the message said that the Drawing would happen in less than 1 day.

    Now, for all I know, a day is made out of 24 hours. So, if the message said, before Saturday's maintainance, in less than 1 day, definately this could not happen by Sunday's maintainance which was in more than 1 day since I was checking a couple of hours before Saturday's maintainance....

    Now, since it was announced that the drawings would happen at maintainance, I concluded that this could not be at sunday maintainance which would have been in more than 1 day and, therefore, it had to be for saturday maintainance.

    Well, thing is, that saturday maintainance came and went and no drawing happened.

    So I guess it will be for sunday maintainance (tomorrow) which would then make the message I got before Saturday's maintainance, a nonsense.

    How much sense does a message make when it says that the drawings would happen in less than one day when they infact happen in more than 1 day (24 hours...) from when I checked ??

    Christ popps, I knew you were a whiny one, but to take stuff so ****en personal and serious, this breaks the barrier. I'd give you a cookie but you might complain about it's composition or whatever else you'd find illogical about it's existence.
