    Move every 7 days. Sheez one trip a week to an internet cafe isn't too much to ask for!

    Thanks ggraygray - I'd definitely like to play.

    I'd also prefer a faster time control - perhaps 40 moves in 40 days to keep it moving along.

    Having said that - I'll play under whatever rules are in place.

    Rule #1 - No hypnotising!
    Rule #2 - Unsound sacrifices by Queenslanders may be taken back.
    Rule #3 - Howard is allowed two rooks on h1 at the start of play as he is prone to carelessly discard one of them inside of the first ten moves.
    Rule #4 - Ditto for Q-bishops.

    Barring illness or unforseen circumstances I would imagine most of us could average one move per day.

    Rule #5 No unfortunate miscalculations against Howard.

    I've written this across my screen in big black letters.

    How many games simulataneously? So a total of how many moves a week?

    I am known as a fast worker?

    If we told you, you'd only ask gain.
    If we told you, you'd (pretend to) not understand.

    So in the interests of clarity, we won't tell you

    Rule 1.
    (a) states :- don't play twice with the same cheat
    (b) states:- learn from your mistakes
    (c) states:- you were sucked in

    And I hope that this clarified things for you too.

    And I eternally glad that you did not respond to the fast worker quip, that is for Watto.

    I shall show my hand after I get two questions answered:
    a. how come KerryS is in only the middle of ratings table and a lowly-rated player is near the top
    b. how many games and moves to make a week?
    c. when will David HIcks and Starter be freed?

    a) Because Garvin's ratings points have come from a tournament which permitted all players to use computer analysis. Garvin and his box performed well in that tournament.

    b) Number of games per week will depend on entries. It is being suggested that each player will have to make one move per game per week (minimum).

    There are the two answers you requested.
