New Chat Room

Anyone who has tried access the chat room in recent weeks may have noticed that it has been extremely temperamental.

I used CentralChat as my IRC chat host and they've had on going problems for the past two or three months that meant the chat room hosted within the site frequently failed to work. As I use a dedicated IRC client, I hadn't noticed how bad it was until recently - I did wonder why no one was coming in for a natter LOL!

Tonight, I've moved to Geekshed.net and the Flash based chat room hosted within the site should be working OK now. Please note that the preferred method for accessing the chat room is to use dedicated IRC chat client software. That way, you never need to visit the site when you only want to visit the chat room.

If you wish to use a client and don't have one, you'll find plenty freely available on the Internet. Enter the following settings into your IRC chat client to connect to the Bet Your Life chat room...

IRC Server: irc.geekshed.net
Port: 6667
Chatroom: #betyourlife


Apologies for any inconvenience caused due to the chat room issues. They should all be resolved now so hope to see you there.

Win Without Trying

Some additional functionality in the latest release of Fairbot inspired me to revisit the horse markets recently. I know, I promised myself never to go near them ever again, but my curiosity got the better of me.

I've been playing in simulation mode with stakes of £100 and I guess it was inevitable that at some stage I'd forget to turn the damn thing on.

I only noticed after the first two races at Lingfield this afternoon that I was playing with real money. Fortunately both races were in profit and I find myself £75 richer without trying.

Simulation mode is now switched back on. Better not push my luck too far.

Infamy, Infamy! They've All Got It Infamy

Racingpost Newspapers
Fame at last!

A bit difficult to see from the image so here's the quote...

"Inspired by our revealing of how a customer following our bankers and naps made 30k a year or more for four years, another customer has staked 5% of his bank on all our daily naps and bankers since August 28th.

He won in September, October and December, with a slight loss in November. So his bank has increased by 74.2%. Our sage knows his onions...."

Yep! That customer is me folks. Sign up to SoccerLotto and follow my progress in the forum.

Back Or Lay Picks 4th-5th Jan

Happy New Year to you.

Quite a handful for this weekend and with it being FA cup weekend, it's mainly the lower leagues that attract my attention (I don't do cup games).

The usual story here... consider lay-to-back strategies for those qualifying markets that have decent liquidity. I'll continue to record the lays as out and out punts.

SCUNTHORPE
CLYDE
