why is the downtime for the iPad server so high?

    I keep getting the following message on the iPad - I get it after playing 3-4 games almost everytime I log in.

    The troublesome thing is that after this happens, I have to remove and reinstall the iPad app.

    It is such a pain playing with a mouse - my ranking comes down 200 points - I am just bad with a mouse - not used to it.

    Sigh.

    Pain with a mouse? I find playing with a mouse to be much easier and faster because your arm moves less... Unless you have bad hand-eye coordination or low mouse sensitivity, I don't see how it would be much harder. But that's only for fast blitz and bullet; for standard or longer blitz there shouldn't be much of a problem. Personal preference I guess.

    Once you get used to just slipping your fingers on the iPad/phone screen, the whole moving-with-a-mouse just seems so much more work. But you never know, the darned thing might actually be screwing up my H-E coordination. Good point.
