Is my interface up to date? All I know is whenever I go to FICS, I get the message, "The page cannot be displayed." I have jin. What to do?
no problems with babaschess. try it, it's way better than jin.
fics 1189 (Thu, Oct 19) IMPORTANT: FICS experiencing hardware 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/ JIN available from http://www.jinchess.com and Thief, available from http://www.thief-interface.com/
