    One thing I would like to change for any future tournaments is to have
    them w/ shorter timeouts...3 day or even 1 day. Ideally we could do it
    in real time w/ rhp live if the download is not too big a deal and the
    bugs are worked out.
    In this tournament I find myself actually hoping jgvaccaro doesn't
    move in the next 3 days because if I don't time him out, our games
    could go months!
    Just my thoughts,

    Franklin, bear in mind that this is correspondence chess. My longest
    running game in my list was started aprill, 22nd, and I don't see the
    end in the first 10 moves! And this is not an exception.
    Maybe this is also a factor that makes people play stronger: the
    capability of letting the position 'sink in' for hours, days, before
    actually studying and making the new move. Sin.
