    c. when will David HIcks and Starter be freed?

    For (a) I suggest you look at Chesschat Tournament number 3. Kerry made two bad blunders in the games against me. I expect he gives these games less attention than others do.
    For (b) there was 12 games at once.

    I leave (c) to others.

    Thanks for explano re computer use - only took about 4 posts to get proper response - KB tried to tell me that at CC GG was a miracle-worker. I still don't know why KerryS is only in middle of table thereabouts.

    When I get an idea of how many games I will decide. I am trying to get away for a while (outside of internet use) but can't plan yet.

    I have only seen your post afterwards, thanks for explano. If there are many games I will have to give a miss. Thanks anyway.

    For those unfamiliar with the ker-plonk sound, that was antichrist being added permanently to my ignore list.

    Biblical allusions spring to mind, such as me having been caught out casting pearls before swine.

    Thanks for the invitation, but I'll pass on the offer ... just back at work and am way too busy at the moment.

    Someone said something about 1 move per day. Sorry i would not be able to conform to that kind of regulation. I just cannot spare the time everyday to play CC. Personally, something like 40 moves/ 40 days however is more realistic.

    I would be happy with that. I appreciate there's difference, but it's all the same to me

    JGB-Its not too strict.......just a few moves per week minimum is fine..........i think the rules say at least one move per week,but 1 move per week all game,could get a bit drawn out..................btw JGB ,what is your rating?
