    The game exists on a public server somewhere in the world, you and your friend only ever see a copy of it, so you can't "lose" it. Tell him to try a different browser if a simple restart doesn't bring it back.

    what are the limits to number of vacation days in a year"

    Why are there any limits?

    I spend quite a bit of time at our cabin which is rather remote and has no electricity.

    If vacation time was not limited, every user would have their vacation flag permanently displayed in order not to lose games by timeout. Chaos would ensue.

    Vacation information is available under My Settings > My Vacation Settings. It's good sense to ensure your games have longer time control settings if your internet access is frequently interrupted. Or you can just accept the rating losses that go with timeouts and don't worry about it.

    Your meaning is not clear, but I think you're saying that DutchProgramm User 692404 cannot log in because the site is refusing to accept his email address.

    Send feedback (there's a link at the bottom of every page on this site) and explain the situation to the site administrator. Make sure you include his full correct email address as they will want to contact him themselves. I'm sure this will be sorted out.

    Are you asking where the pgn CAN be read or have you a game that appears not to have a 'reliable' pgn ? Some games have inaccurate game history, this can happen for no apparent reason but the pgn will make no sense at all..
    Please indicate the problem further ....

    I was just offered a draw when I was winning by 3 pieces, so I didn't accept. I then made my move, but when I returned to the site it says that I have resigned the game. Has my account been hacked?

    If you are talking about Game 9709222, it shows that your opponent has resigned and you have been awarded the win.
