about this ghost tales,
Since I have been on PHP, I have found two moves while sleeping, I happens that I check the games before sleeping, then I decide that I will move tomorrow because I am too tired, then at 6 o'clock(exactly) I wake up remebering this dream where I was analysing the board and saw the move, I imediatly go to the pc, check it, and it is very good:
move 15, opponent resigned
[gid]id 2286301[/gid] move 22, opponent resigned 3 moves away(of course he wasn't playing very good)
but the point is that it is normal that this happens, I could also say that I saw a ghost or something.
I say that it is normal because I used to repair tv's, and it was like 5 times that I could find a problem while sleeping, after spending the hole day working on it. and a friend of mine told me it hapened to him two times.
I think that the brain transmit the data to the subconcient, and then he works on it.
