My mom's dimentia is much worse and she needs constant attention. All work on chess programming and related stuff has completely stopped for now. Later!
I hate if statements. Pawns demand if statements. Therefore I hate pawns.

Tony,

I've not received any registration for Romi from anyone.

So, I don't see your point.

If someone wants to setup the account for RomiChess then Sam Hamilton said that he will operate Romi. Or if that someone wants to be the operator and has good hardware then I am sure that Sam would not mind. I will compile a kibitzing version of P3k for the tournament.

I would do more myself, but my mom's well being is the more important to me right now and she needs all my attention at this time.
