My experience with the sumogames.com server in general and the
Sekitori-Toto in particular is that the time of day strongly
influences your ability to access the entry & results pages.

I live in California in the +8 time zone.  I find that the
best time to access Sekitori-Toto & Internet Sumo Pool is either
around 6-8 am (1400-1600 GMT) or mid-afternoon around 2-4 PM
(2200-2400 GMT).

Also I sometimes have a problem, especially if I take too long to
make my picks, that when I click submit it will pop up the login
screen instead of confirming the picks.  I have found that if I
click save my picks instead of submit it will usually save them
to the system and return you to the top of the screen then when
you scroll down and press submit you get the confirmation screen.

Hope this helps,

Hi Jeanne,

Thanks for the heads-up. I've actually sent my picks in via the e-mail
process you describe below a couple of times in the recent past.
Unfortunately, I was under time pressure that didn't allow me to do that
this time around. Kobayashi advance posts the upcoming bouts, and I would be
inclined to use his posts as the basis for my e-mail entries, but thanks for
the recommended website info. 

I think the main thing is to get my entries in more timely, or at least give
myself enough of a margin to go the e-mail route in future, should problems
persist. Glad to say that my pal and I had no problems getting in today, and
hope things will continue to work as smoothly till the end of the basho.

A little off-topic, I also wanted to thank you for your efforts regarding
info about withdrawals and returns; it's good stuff to know when making
one's picks, and a great reason to check SML postings before making the
daily game entry.

Best regards,

Ben Howell
