I may be wrong, but I am quite sure that the current user of the day (Mark Elowitz) has been one before.

Can someone better at maths than me come up with the odds, or does the system use a bad random number generator ?

It's simple.. they're only using "happy Boninc'ers"! (the number available is quite low 1 of 3, or 1 of 5)

They had Mark, the french poodle, the "thumbs up guy" and now it's back to Mark!

I wonder, after they've been validated as "user of the day" three times, are they granted credit?
