Re: Poll on moderation

Last moderator elections took place a long time ago. Is it alright with you to keep having the same team of moderators? Enrique I think that an even more important question is: "Is it alright with them?" Can't speak for Albert or Thorsten on this, but I'm happy to carry on until elections are held,...

Re: Portable recommendation?

I have done alot of testing of various combinations of PDA and chess programs and at the moment I prefer the iPAQ 2750 with a 624Mhz processor and run PocketGrandMaster 3.0 loaded with Toga ll 1.2.1a.The reason I prefer to use the 2750 compared to the 2790 which I also own is because I can use a Ha...

Re: Which is the best server to play online chess ?
