Quoting from the acf Bulletin;

Internet projects: online Aussie chess club/chess "wiki": Helpers are sought for two internet projects I'd like to start - an online Aussie chess club, and an open online chess encyclopedia (a "wiki" in techno-speak). Let's take them one at a time.

Online Aussie Chess Club: I'd like to start a "club" for Aussie players on FICS, the Free Internet Chess Server. What I have in mind is simply setting up a time to "meet" on FICS (say weeknights 6pm AEST till late, to allow widespread participation, plus weekend play) *and* adopting a chat channel (I nominate channel 250, which seems little used) so that club members can talk to each other. the facilities - software, server etc - all already exist ... the only issue is organising the get-together. I envisage that informal tournaments and blitz competitions, etc, could be run, as well as impromptu training sessions and so on. Webpages would be set up to make it easy for people to download the software needed and join the club. Unfortunately, I work nights - so I would not be able to run the thing myself. If anyone would like to help out on this, please email me.

wouldn't that be an interesting Idea. I hope this succeeds!! :)

It's a simple chess-playing interface that's just been set up on the ACF server. People who want to use it regularly should email me their preferred name and password and i"ll set up and account.

This looks gay! It is not what a real server should look like.

I believe the preferred term is, "ghey". ;)

Pay attention to the man in the iron cage only.
