    What's the point of having chessatwork, timeforchess, etc. when they're the same thing as rhp and just different colors? Am I missing something?

    I find the chess@work interface alot easier on the eyes, as it is mostly in black and white.

    I find the www.playtheimmortalgame.com interface a lot easier on the eyes as it is mostly in soothing blue and white.

    I like that you can choose an interface.

    Pity your stats remain the same when you switch between them though

    also a pity you can only log in to one at a time, if you switch you get ads ...

    Site Settings:

    Enable multiple browsers to be logged into the same account

    Check the box might fix that. I'm logged on most all in case a link sends me there.

    Check and see if that changes ads showing up. I don't get ads when switching. This message is sent from RHP though I use TFC.

    You do need to log in at each site, if you are not logged into the other site already, you will get the ads.

    Not sure Site Settings info I gave is required after my edit... but you must be logged in to avoid the ads.

    Yes, I think I could handle that one also, I am so use to the mostly black and white, it looks all lit up like a christmas tree in there

    A lot of people play at work and their chess site gets banned/blocked once it's known...so it's good to have a few spares to fall back on when that happens.

    Not that I would know anything about that.... ;-)

    One thing about chessatwork that was brought up long ago and never addressed:

    when minimized or tabbed, the top bar reads: "ChessAtWork.com". Why wouldn't Russ make it something else like: "BusinessRelations.com" or "Weekly Sales Averages"? Having the word "Chess" as the first word in the title makes chessatwork.com the ironically worst site to use while at work.

    Edit: Not to mention the icon is the same little horsey piece
