    1189 (Thu, Oct 19) Password (and not only) problems
    "FICS is currently experiencing hardware problems, which have blocked our Web page, the registration system and our email system. This also means that we are unable to issue new passwords. However, if you have password problems connecting with Jin (the main Web interface), it is probably not due to a forgotten password, so please download, install and connect with another GUI (Graphical User Interface). Possible options are WinBoard, available as a self-installing .EXE from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/winboard/winboard-4_2_7a.exe, BabasChess, available from http://www.babaschess.net/ and Thief, available from http://www.thief-interface.com/"

    FICS is very good, even if it had a fee it would be good. I have PC, but still use FICS from time to time to support the guys running it, and because it's generally easier to find a 30 min. game there.
