Re: Media comments on chess

Hi Justin, The wife said that Serpentine was a good each way bet, usually I pay heed to her as she knows a thing or two about the horses and can spot good bets in the parade ring, it's something about the way they act she spots. Very rarely fails and had 7 seven winners a few weeks back, but not in ...

Re: www.chessgames.com

Thanks Lads, But I am not going to faff about with proxy things etc. if they cannot get it working at their end. It does appear to be the only site on the whole net I cannot get onto. (Carl sometimes wishes I could not get on here.) It is a good site, I like it for raiding obscure historical games w...

Re: www.chessgames.com

Still nothing. I sent them an email two day ago. No reply.

Feel a wee bit guilty, they give me a free sub because apparently they liked my posts.
though it is not my fault, I can get on everywhere else.

If anybody can get on please advice them in the 'Kibitzers Cafe' some cannot get on.

Re: Media comments on chess

The board round the wrong way is seen so often I'm wondering if the props team ever do wonder about which way round the board should be and look at stills from other programs. The chances are they will find a wrong one. "The chess club referred to as the chess society." There is the 'British Chess P...

Re: www.chessgames.com

Hi Alistair. Thanks you for your help and the details (I still cannot log on) but please do not call me 'Geoffrey' It's always Geoff, ('Geoffrey' is what my mum shouted at me prior to a skelp around the lughole.) I have had a PM from someone who knows Neil and is contacting him on my behalf. I have ...

Hi Matt,

Me neither, only one thing for it, me and you will have to start up our own chessgames site, (gamesofchess.com)

All we need is a Database of about 1 million games and 200 people who cannot get on with each other.

Re: www.chessgames.com

I managed to get on for a day, now it's gone again. A little tardy in initial response but it is working today. Tried three different applications, plus other browsers and Iphones, no joy. It may be on the brink of tipping into oblivion. John can you help? I need to find what I posted in the thread...

Re: www.chessgames.com

Still cannot get on and I like that site for the ease in finding and getting a game's PGN and picking up the odd inspiring tit-bit. Anybody else still locked out? Hi Jonathan, They have a corrections procedure, it can a take a while once it is submitted. The game I mentioned above took a day, Howeve...

Re: www.chessgames.com

I cannot get on, been that way for a day or two. They have a thread there where they allow practically anything to be said and the insults fly. I was thinking say it went down mid argument and some guy has been fuming for two days waiting to get his reply posted and his counter insult heard. Hi Jona...
