Re: Which is the best server to play online chess ?

I like Convekta's Chess Assistant Club . The interface takes a bit of getting used to, but it is very...

Re: WCCC 2007: My predictions for the last rounds

Re: This is to clarify the "abandonware" issue.

Is Albert Silver against piracy? Of course he is as you've been told many times both here and in private. Why continue to harrass him? "Stalking" another member is not acceptable. Regards, Graham. I have been told it - I have never seen him say it in public. I have him in writing saying it is ok to...
