    How hard would it be to add to the email notification the opponent's move in algebraic notation as well as in FEN? Speaking for myself, I would find this much more useful. As it stands, to discover my opponent's move, I have to either copy & paste to a document to read the fen, or I have to check all my games for the actual moves. Since I'm on a dialup modem, I can't study the positions on line for very long.

    OK, newbie question I've been meaning to ask, hope it doesn't sidetrack the original post. Been reading the e-mails, have seen the FEN's. Can anyone explain to me what the FEN is and how to read it?

    Thanks.
