btw - what's the 'posting convention' you prefer? Would it work better for your team if I responded to the initial post or are you into cascading trees and prefer my moves posted as a reply to your move post, or, more likely, you couldn't care less and trying to find out why am I asking this at all?

As an aside - would you prefer we post a FEN board updated with our respective moves, or would you be occasionally updating the first post with the game so far?
Non important questions, I know ;)
Parent - By Uly (Gold) [mx] Date 2009-11-05 05:57
I'd prefer you to post the moves in the way I've been doing, because it's the standard way that is done for the correspondence chess games of the Chess subforum as suggested by Dadi Jonsson (i.e. the move should be posted as general reply to thread [that's the Reply option at the very top or very bottom of the page - otherwise if we reply to each other, sooner or later the post indent is going to leave us without space], comments are to be posted as replies to these moves), the full game is posted (with new move in bold) for observers that'd like to copy it to their interfaces, the FEN is posted so a diagram is generated for observers that only want to know how's the game going at a glance. That said, I have the highest priority for comfort, so you can post your moves in the way that makes you feel comfortable (and you don't need to thank us on every move ;).)

The first post doesn't need update if the game and FEN are posted every move, it'll be updated at the end of the game.

Ohh man, I used to play that at blitz and I know it can be serious even at OTB 40moves in 2hours.

But correspondance with computers ! Man you are the one !

where is the discussion taking place? if it's a hidden thread or site, could i have access? i am not interested in voting but rather observing the machinations, maybe adding a comment if i feel i have something to contribute, which is unlikely.

It´s an interesting experiment! Democracy (Warriors) vs Dictatorship (HEM)! What´s the better system in chess! :-)

PS: I hope, the warriors are real democratic and there isn´t a "little" dictator! :-)

there is a little "dictator" inside all of us.. at least a dicky ticker :-p

btw - I'm heading to the airport at 4am GMT (to Stockholm if you're curious) so I won't be responding to your move at the regular response time you may have grown fond of.
Just wanted to make sure you don't get worried when you don't see my response coming fast that you may have picked a surprising move ;)
(let the war of words commence hehe)

Oh, so now we can't play a surprising move?

I claim that the move we're going to play will surprise you.
Parent - By turbojuice1122 (Gold) [us] Date 2009-11-10 02:34
Nice claim. :-)  I just hope that it doesn't surprise me!
Parent - By Highendman (****) Date 2009-11-10 04:40
I know you can / will. Just throwing some pun. Regrettably as I'm already late to the airport I'll only see your move tonight when I'm back - so I hope it's not too much of a surprise for me :)
- - By Uly (Gold) [mx] Date 2009-11-10 06:41

Time out request: I'm heading for Frankfurt for two days - I'll be back @ Friday, about 22:00 GMT.
Please don't play your 8. ..Nxx until then?
I.e. per match rules, you now have more time on your clock.
I'll make the same request on the other game thread once you play your move today and I have responded with my move there as well.
Thanks/
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) [mx] Date 2009-11-11 19:00
I guess we can't refuse the time out, can we? :)

Okay, have fun in Frankfurt, I assume our 24 hours start running from the moment you get back?
Parent - - By Highendman (****) Date 2009-11-11 19:07
I thought we'll have you play your move on Friday afternoon GMT - in essence giving you an extra 24 hours (e.g. instead of you moving by 6.33pm GMT on Thursday, you'll move at 6pm Friday) - and I'll post my response as soon as I'm back home Friday evening.

However if you want more time and would prefer to have your clock resume only Friday evening i.e. you can play your move by Saturday afternoon that's fine by me as well.
The thing I need to avoid is a scenario where you move at 4am Thursday (while I'm on my way to the airport) and me losing on time as I'm not here to respond until Friday night ;)

I agree, that 'time out' mechanism definition is not very clear :) I'm happy to go with anything that works for you on this though.

Thanks for the well wishes on Frankfurt. It will be fun if the deal closes, and not so fun otherwise ;)
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) [mx] Date 2009-11-11 19:27
I just want to have clear at what point in time our clock starts running and we have 24 hours to move from that time (e.g. what is the lapse of 24 hours in where we should post our move.)

Since you're making the rules, we're left to try to maximize our winning chances with them ;)
Parent - - By Highendman (****) Date 2009-11-11 20:03
I believe my 2. b4? move was ample compensation for me having made the rules ;)

Let's say your 24 hours (clock resumes) kicks in on Friday 7am GMT? I'm actually fine with any clock mgmt you prefer if you have a preference - the only thing I want to avoid is you moving before 7am GMT Friday, to make sure I don't flag in case my returning flight gets delayed or something and I only get back Saturday.

I should be back online at home at about 10pm Friday - and I expect to be able to respond promptly to your move - it's not a stage of a game either party is going to be able to surprise the other I guess.
Parent - By Uly (Gold) [mx] Date 2009-11-11 20:10
Friday 7am GMT is fine.

> I believe my 2. b4? move was ample compensation for me having made the rules ;-)


Well, a member just said that b4 is the best move you could have played considering the circumstances :-P

We'd like to know if during the time out you left the computer(s) analyzing in automatic mode.
Parent - By Highendman (****) Date 2009-11-24 13:04
I did. However I was running Aquarium Beta (early build) and it crashed at what appeared to be like 5 minutes after I left the house :)
I think both your moves, and my reply, on both games at that brief time-out stage, were pretty much only moves, so nothing gained or lost at that time.
