Rather unusually, I got an e-mail from someone in Camelot's
"Regulation and Governance Department" informing me that they'd made
a mistake on their official site w.r.t. last night's Daily Play ball set (they'd put ball
set 8 up initially, but later corrected it to ball set 12).
I'm guessing some member of the public told them that my ball set
didn't match theirs (I certainly didn't notice and I bet Camelot aren't
checking my site for differences either) and then Camelot got in touch
with me. It's a bit strange that I wasn't contacted directly by whoever
spotted the problem in the first place though ! And, yes, it does look
like there's now 4 more ball sets (12 instead of 8) for Daily Play and they've
stopped using the "D" prefix on the official site for them.

Bought two more tickets (online) for Saturday's £15m Super Draw.
I'd never advertised this site's address with a "www." on the front (Google, for
example, lists it without that prefix), but I did set up the site a while back
to allow that prefix to be used. I've noticed, however, that lottery scammers have
been using that prefix in their e-mails, so I've changed that address to put up
a message that it's the wrong address and also to remind people about
the scams warning.

Widened the draw number input field to four characters when changing the
draw range in the Ticket Checker. This is in preparation for draw 1000 which
is coming up in less than 3 weeks, but it does highlight that there are
probably other alignment issues (yes, I've used %03d for printf()'s in a
lot of code for example) related to this forthcoming jump to a 4-digit draw
