Thought this might be an interesting thread :p

My best stroke of luck:

Successfully getting 7 invoices paid on the day before rent was due!

Worst stroke of luck:

My PC crapping out and losing 4,000 words of content I was in the process of finishing off for a client.

Best: Arbitrage betting, accidently placed £203 worth of bets to back rather than £100 to back and £103 to lay at odds of 7/2. By the grace of god the horse won and I scooped £711 profit.

Worst: PC randomly BSODing mid trade.
