    Is there a convenient way to search my old games for certain openings? I notice in the Games Explorer there is a section called My Games, but it just says "No games for user Willzzz progressed beyond this position." Is there a time delay for my old games to be processed or..?

    Maybe it's broken. It says that no games for me progressed beyond the starting position. I've been playing for about 1.5 years.

    The Games Explorer was last updated at the end of 2008.

    It's not broken just in dire need of an update.

    If you joined in 2010 then you won't see any.
    1½ years - you may have just missed the last update by a few months.

    I do not think it shows games under 10 moves because there are
    1,000's and I means 1000's of games timed out after just a few moves.

    Ideally it should be updated every month. It is a brilliant site feature.

    I thought there was one mid 2009 - maybe I'm wrong.

    The date stamp on the front of the database is wrong.

    I'm just going off memory. If it was updated after Dec. 2008 I missed it.

    There's a date stamp on the database??

    That means it is broken, operationally if not structurally.

    You had Russ thinking he was on easy street after fixing the black to move thingy ... and now this !!!

    I know he is working on it but the thing is in PGN.

    Have you ever tried to load in a DB of 60,000 pgn games.
    It is slow, well it is on my kit - imagine over 2 million.
    This is why I think it should be done on a monthly basis.

    I'm not pushing him on this one. I've have my PGN fixed.

    I think (and this is pure specualtion) that a massive over-haul is coming
    and it may mean RHP going off the air for a while. We will get warned.
