Get For Me: OurPastime.com for lottery & football
Looking for software which can analyse 4-D and Toto (lottery) games in Singapore? Look no further. This website lets you analyse both games and churns out possible winning numbers, but don't bet your last dollar on the numbers as the people behind the website do not guarantee you will definitely be successful.
Besides 4-D and Tot, football, golf, as well as information on cars are featured on the website. They even have a used-car-buyer's checklist which details the steps you, as a potential car buyer should go through to ascertain the condition of the used car you are interested in buying. The website, which went online in August 1999, also has a currency converter and world time indicator.
