Now it seems not to be working at all. The game froze then I was told I'd lost, and nothing is happening. Admittedly I was losing but even so...

I think that you have been rather unlucky. I am taking a break after playing from 0500 to 1000. The only problems which I had were those caused by my own incompetence.

"The only problems which I had were those caused by my own incompetence."

Indeed, I noticed in our game about 4.40 pm! But I was not immune, I managed to lose a game to Alex Holowczak, where he kept taking my pieces. I wondered if I could claim that was "abuse". I did at least draw with the winner.

I think I just had signal problems last night. The landline phone/internet/mobiles all suffer a bit in this part of the world.

Anyway, enjoyable event.
