Re: The A.R.B Chess System v The Hippopotamus Defence - Diff

AR Brown is an interesting fellow. I will give him more rope. No need for ordnance. TJF :lol: PS Hopefully, he will expand on his system. :shock: T.J is an old and respected member of this place since lot of years ago. He was an officer in US army and do not like bad treatment. We know for certain ...

Re: FICS server down

As a long time FICS user this makes me very sad. Side note, I'm curious how the myriad of free Android/iPhone chess clients will fair since I noticed a lot of the ones I tested actually used FICS as the backend via 5 1 time control and guest accounts. Just connection errors, not the end of the worl...

Re: ChessOk Android App

I have been looking for alternative to FICS for the last 4 days, not sure if it will come back. The iOS version is called Chess Planet and I installed the app and tried to create an account, they ask too many questions want to know your full name, date of birth, email address, male/female so just de...

Re: Chess in Phones.....My od

I have replaced all my desktop chess software in favor of portable pda/phone software. I don't actually play these devices but use them as research tool. Once these handhelds became faster and combined with the best engines then they have exceeded super GM strength. Benchmarks help potential buyers ...

Re: ChessBase online app for iOS vs Android.

Is there any reason why the Android version is more advanced than the iOS version. Has the iOS got severe limitations on what can and can't be done?

Re: ChessBase online app for iOS vs Android.

Long story short is that I have a collection of 7000 games in Pgn file, I want to be able to perform filtering functions to get relevant games and positions.I have been using PocketFritz which can do these o...
