* Note1: Andrew Newton has asked to be removed from the list on July 5th, 2007.

The following 4 sources (please see Note2 below) of randomness shall be used as
input to the RFC 3797 algorithm.

1. EuroMillions  Fri July 13, 2007 Results:

All 7 numbers (5 numbers from 1 - 50 and 2 Lucky Stars from 1 - 9)
Results available online around 10 PM UK time.

e.g., Fri  Jun, 22 07 results 11 16 17 22 34 05 06
We input 11 16 17 22 34 5 6

2. US National debt ("Debt Held by the Public"), published by the Treasury
department as of July 12, 2007 (Published on July 13, 2007)

"The system is updated daily with the previous day's data. The update typically
takes place around 3:00 pm EDT."

That according to

Web Development Branch
Bureau of the Public Debt"

Last 8 digits, ignore the commas and periods from the "Debt Held by the Public"

e.g., Fri June 22, 2007  4,950,586,161,721.14
We select  16172114

3. US National debt ("Intragovernmental Holdings"), published by the Treasury
department as of July 12, 2007 (Published on July 13, 2007)

Last 8 digits, ignore the commas and periods from the "Intragovernmental

e.g., Fri June 22, 2007    3,852,643,882,285.79
We select  88228579

4. Lottery again, Megamillions

All 6 numbers (including the Mega Ball) from the drawing on July 13, 2007 (at
11:00 pm US Eastern time).

e.g., Fri June 22, 2007 result 11, 14, 21, 24, 31, 23
We input 11 14 21 24 31 23

All the inputs are to RFC 3797 selection algorithm. There is source code in
that RFC and an example.

+++++++ The following applies if there are exceptional circumstances +++++++++
Note2: If the National Debt information information were not available on July
13th, we wait until Monday, July 16th for it to be available. If one of the two
lottery drawings were to be canceled, we proceed with 3 out of the 4 sources of
randomness as input to the 3797 algorithm. If both lottery drawings were to be
canceled, we use the following procedure:

a. Substitute EuroMillions with Lotto Results
( from Saturday,
July 14 2007 -- All 7 numbers including the Bonus number.
(The substitution is so we don't have to wait a week) -- and run the procedure
on the 14th. All other information is as specified earlier. At this point, we
will be using 3 out of the 4 sources.

b. If the Lotto on Saturday were also to be canceled, we use the following:
Megamillions: All 6 numbers (including the Mega Ball) from the drawing on July
17, 2007 (at 11:00 pm US Eastern time). Once again, we will be using 3 out of
the 4 sources.
