Sorry, I could have made it clearer: my question is how do I play Blitz on this site? I am technically inept! What shows on my screen confuses me. I was hoping for the usual electronic board. Instead all I get is a tabulated format with no hint of where to go next.
You can either use the controls on the left hand side to offer a game, or (if there is one there) accept a game from the middle section.
The list on the right shows who is currently playing (they'll have little boards next to them) and who is waiting.
The user list shows a star for a subscriber and a little blobby man for a non-sub. If you hover over their names you'll see their CC rating (blitz is not yet rated). If they're provisionally rated there's a little square next to the icon.
If you don't see any players down the right hand side, then most likely you'll have a firewall problem (you'll need to make sure you have port 1935 open for outbound TCP).
