    Ok, first off, I have a game that is still in progress, but I don't want any comments about the game itself, as my question is about the time-element.

    The game in question is a "long haul" tournament game, and so is 21 days per move, with 21 days initial timeout.

    here is the link, just to prove i'm not kidding: [gid]http://www.redhotpawn.com/core/playchess.php?gameid=9967002&cbqsid=31265[/gid]

    This means a maximum of 42 possible days between moves, right?

    So how come this member, becdude, has not moved in "42 days and 7 hours", yet our game is still in progress?

    I'd just like to know how that even works... I have 10 hours remaining before I can claim skull

    42 days is the longest time after you have replied to his move, he might not have moved for over 42 days but it depends on when sent your reply to him as to when his clock starts ticking

    NO
    If you used your 21 days and timebank it would be a maximum of 84 days!!

    yeah, including mine as well, but I haven't used mine this is just becdude's move.

    it doesn't matter anyway, as i'm about to claim skull... there must have been some time between me making a move against him, and him making his last move before [seemingly] leaving the site.

    You mean your last move was instantly after his? I doubt it!!

    No what i meant was, that my last move was 10 or so hours after his,
    which explains how time since he last moved exceeded 42 days

    Note that i was drunk when i made this thread.
    Had i have thought about it more, i'd have worked it out...
    A bit like my chess, unfortunately

    HaHa. I think all posters should pass a breathalyser test before posting.
