    I have often used the Chessbase Online database at http://www.chesslive.de but I can no longer get it to work. The site loads but the search doesn't work and none of the usual list of moves in the database are displayed. It uses Microsoft Silverlight as a web browser plugin, so I have uninstalled that and reinstalled the latest version, tried out different browsers, cleared the Silverlight cache etc but still no joy. Anybody else having the same issue?

    Yes, I'm having the same issue. This database seems to go on holiday periodically. This isn't the first time its been out for a while. I'll bet it fixed early next year.

    Thank you - If it's not just me I'll stop shouting abuse at my computer and blaming Bill Gates for all the ills of the world 🙂

    This database is back up, by the way.
