    Any more entries? If there are no more in a week or so I can start running it (if people want me to, feel very welcome to decline!) but it's probably better to have one or two more if possible. Four is about the bare minimum really.

    Any views on time rates? (See #1 - I was thinking maybe 3 timeouts, each of which extends the time for the current move by 4 days)

    I'll be more precise. If there aren't any by Tuesday (Istanbul time) I'll assume that's it and kick off, unless somebody else wants to run it.

    Sounds good to me.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    I would love to play, but am unfortunately way too otherwise engaged with work and real life, so please exclude me this time around.
