    I wouldn't mind getting my CM9000 a log-on name.... but not sure "the boss" Russ would want extra members who are computers that would never pay to play here. (My computer is broke... no cash)

    I also wouldn't want to tie my computer up for 24 hours to think about a move... I might let it think for 6 or so while I sleep...

    I'd play a game by email if you have a computer you want to test... and we can figure out computer thought times per move...

    Up to you.

    Cool beans... I see you have a lot of games but would you like to play a non-rated game using our computers... Make it 7 day.... only let computer think 6 hour per move? We could even keep track of the computers ratings starting them off at 2000 each.

    The game would have to be non rated... no sense in us taking a beating if we aren't making the moves.... I'll let you have White or black if you like.

    About time to change the AV up... I do it once in a bit. Time for a good one.

    What computer program you run on what computer? We can get a game same rules.

    Anyone here know how I can best set fritz so that it thinks for an hour on each move?The manual nor it's help files shed much light on it
    It does have a 'fixed time per move' option where I can put in any number I like.But what does that number mean?Seconds?Minutes?Does anyone know?

    Soundz like trial & error might help in this instance. Set it to 1, 2 etc with a watch handy.

    It's in seconds - at least it is in Fritz 8.
