    Wow! That's forking and then really twisting the knife - if you'll forgive the mixed metaphor.

    No, a windmill is a series of regular and discovered checks, usually by a Bishop and Rook.

    I was thinking moves 29 and 30. Either way it was massive destruction.

    30. Kf2 would have avoided the next fork.

    Here's a pretty good example of a windmill.
