    Just finished a marathon coding session trying to clear down my to do
    list. (Hopefully it will be enough to satisfy the more feature
    demanding users out there, naming no names, er,, Rhymester...😛 )

    Anyway, the following is in testing and should be live by the weekend:

    1)Private game ‘notebook’ – you can make notes to yourself
    on each game.

    2)Vacation mode – just alerts people to the fact you are on
    holiday – but does not stop them timing you out if they really want
    to. (Who would do such a thing?)

    3)Select ‘view complete lists’ on your games by default.
    (Huge cheer from the MAP gang, no doubt)

    4)Resign and offer draw are moved far away from move
    button.

    5)Intoduced stylesheets to make pages lighter (and therefore faster
    to load) This is good news for all but Win-TV users (is there any?)

    6)Tested and approved RHP on Opera 7. No more radio buttons for
    Opera users in the future 🙂

    Things still to finish, but mostly complete:

    1) Challenge filter. (accept only players rated between X and Y )
    2) Timeout filter (accept only challenges with timeout over X)
    3)Reorganisation of ‘your settings’ to accommodate yet more options.


    Any other stuff I promised recently will be along shortly. 😀

    Oh yeah, and the forum enhancements should be next.

    I want whatever he's having 😀

    And I thought we weren't supposed to expect much from you on a
    Thursday night 😉

    My fault. Sorry. Russ will be assisting me in the celebration of my
    30th birthday this weekend!

    Well it looks like I'm now King of MDP! (Most Demanding Player) 😉

    PS. Don't forget the 'expected pace / move frequency' idea so that
    people don't always have to associate 14 day timeouts with slow
    games.

    There you go, see what I mean? 🙂

    They are on my list - I really like the idea, and any excuse for more
    fun icons...

    Seriously though, the next big thing is the draw problem. I have bet
    Chris money I would have it done within 20 days, and time is ticking...

    Thanks Russ! And when you get chance can you put a block on
    puzzles like the Dutch Tombstone one making their way through ... as
    they say "It's doing me 'ead in!" 😉
