All bets off as casino refuses to pay jackpot:
Two men from Manitoba have hired a lawyer and are threatening legal action after a Winnipeg casino refused to pay out more than $209,000 in slot-machine winnings.
The machine said the win was worth a jackpot of $209,716.40. The casino said it was a software error.
A software error. Someone didn’t do enough Unit Testing.
I wonder if the casino will seek damages from the software manufacturer. They must; but then, did the casino know the error was possible? If so, it seems like they were gambling as well.

Yesterday, Dawn said I should go jogging: “You’re always talking about it. Do it!” And I almost did it, but it started to rain, so I had to put it off; however, having someone prompt me to do it ALMOST made me do it. I’ll have to remind her to do that again.
I used to jog in my youth and university. I used to bike from Foxtrap to MUN (that route is wrong: the new highway wasn’t built then; I had to go down Kenmount Road) during summers (having to get off the bike and walk DOWN hill sometimes because the wind was so strong); I used to bike from Cole Harbour to Mount Saint Vincent University (that route’s wrong, too: I had to take the other bridge) in the winter; I used to work-out and lift weights.
What exercise do I do now? Walk down the six flights of stairs when I leave work. That’s it.
I really should start jogging again, even though I think I’m getting skinnier instead of fatter.
Louiefest is coming! Play “The National Anthem of Rock ‘n’ Roll” with 999 other guitarists:
Attempt to set a Guinness World record of the most guitars playing the same song together. Our choice of song is the formidable Washington State rock ‘n’ roll song “Louie Louie”.
Back In Black would be cooler.
The lyrics and music of ‘Louie Louie’ describes the history of its confusing lyrics and how to play it.
Toots & the Maytals recorded the best version. A video of it is available on YouTube, including their excellent reggae rendition of John Denver’s Take Me Home, Country Roads.
