The next lottery draw

Today is the 10th anniversary of the National Lottery. And to celebrate, the official web site appears to be broken:

Update: The site is now saying that “Lotto & EuroMillions are temporarily unavailable.” Hmmm…
Somehow, I don’t think the next draw will be in 1970. In any case, its browser sniffing is also broken – parts of the site won’t let you use Firefox, but as soon as you use something like User Agent Switcher to disguise it as Netscape 7.x it works fine. Which it should since the underlying code is the same, but I shouldn’t have to do that. And yes, Powergen’s site is still broken in the same way.
Looks like the lottery has some site fixing to do.
