    I agree with MichaelBaron that the website needs to be fixed

    but

    imagine my surprise when clicking the link http://australianchess.blogspot.com in MichaelBarons's sig to discover, not a thriving and up-to-date blog, but a time capsule from 2006-2007. Hopefully my visit did not disturb the dust!

    Imagine my even bigger surprise when clicking the link www.auschess.org.au
    I get a thriving and up-to-date blog and find that it was updated by Michael Baron.

    You got me sucked in for a sec! Then I said "cool story bro" (what happened to the HBK btw? - give us an "oi" son) but then again I am sure if Michael applied himself to it he could produce something special!

    Imagine my surprise when I realise that the blog that I've long forgotten about (people start and stop blogs all the time) is being compared to the ACF page. Funny? Yes. Once again, all I am doing is asking a simple question: will the website be updated or not? If no, just say no ....or I may start thinking that without me returning to my long-forgotten blog - ACF is not allowed to do so

    Do you mean updated or overhauled? I ask because a lot of the out-of-date information that people were complaining about has actually been updated now (although some hasn't.)

    Hold on a sec mate! I like your blog, it has some analytical references to at least a couple of games (Portish's game from memory was the one)! On the other hand, without attempting an exhaustive investigation of ACF's site, I think that is not all that bad. We also have the newsletter with lots of news, ratings etc.

    Talking about Aus Chess Ass websites, I would suggest to fellow chatters to check them out. Maybe we can have a poll for the most popular! Then again thinking of what kind of parochial so and sos you are, forget about it! I mean c'mon can you imagine a dinky di Victorian voting for NSW's site and vice versa? Get real!

    Unfortunately that's another example of out-of-date content since CameronD is still in the final weeks of his ban for unauthorised withdrawal, which expires on 1 July.

    Funny, is that the same Cameron D who tried to have me barred from CC - what a co-incidence and walk a mile in my shoes about being barred

    If you really cannot work out a couple of clicks to change your signature, I doubt anyone cares about your advice on website maintenance.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    In this life Comrade Baron, you can choose between two courses. You can niggle people to update their websites, or you can have a sig that tells people to visit your own out of date website. You can't do both.

    (Well OK maybe PG Wodehouse is not applicable here because you can do both, indeed you just did, but you have to admit the contrast makes for comedy gold!)

    In life i have a lot of choices and the beautiful thing is ...you can not make them for me .
    Pity that the ACF club is busy discussing my choices rather than ACF .

    In less than the time it took you to type this, you could have changed the sig.
