@jack. I don't mind speed chess, but a longer game is better

Lighthouse, Right, I guess in English it's called "checkmate" - should have looked it up and not translated it literaly from "Schach matt".

instead of sending letters, why not using email? a lot cheaper and it's the same concept with sending letters. ^_^

don't worry, jack, when we become as experienced as whs, we'll see their point.

pipo's dad: back in our days, computers took up the space of a whole room.
pipo: really, dad? that's so ancient.

pipo as a dad: back in our days, computers took up the space of a desk
pipo's soon to be son: really, dad? that's so ancient.

but seriously, though, my dad's an "ancient techy," and he keeps telling me and my brothers stories about "the way things were" back in the old days... mainframe computers, punched-cards, 4GB HD computers, 386 processors...
