    We would still be waiting on two irrelevant games from another group.

    Ruprecht has just timed out on both my games. Pity he didn't withdraw two months ago and save us all a long wait

    2 months of vacation...Ruprecht is a douche.

    Update....still a douche.

    Another player has complained of this in another rank dependant tournament I am playing in and at the organiser's request the player honourably withdrew.

    I feel a bit miffed I have ended up playing someone with a rating of 1648 in an under 1200 tourney. I know people's score change, but by so much! Seems unfair...

    It's a pity that vacation time can't be restricted to a specified period, e.g 5 days, mostpeoplw would probably be able to access the Internet at some point over a 5 day period

    I was staying in a 4* hotel for a social media awards dinner! Who could have anticipated an awards with a live twitter wall would be at a hotel without wifi or even that a 4* Hilton would not have wifi. iPads have no USB port and I was tied to the awards and couldn't just swan off - we won by the way :)

    It certainly is frustrating.  Bad luck about your lost tournament games.  Could you not avoid that situation in future by purchasing a prepaid internet usb stick or using a public computer such as in in an internet cafe or city library if the need arises?

    It's hard, when you need it you you can't always have it anyway. A couple of weeks ago I was away on a business trip and the hotel had no wifi, only LAN in the room which is no good for my iPad and I ended up timing out on 4 tournament games in tournaments I had been in for months. I wanted to cry. Vacation time was no use then. Some tournaments do go on for months and if there is no vacation time I can see how this would be a problem, but it is frustrating when you're on the end of it.

    I just can't see the need for it.

    I think vacation should be very limited if at all in these tornaments. Just my opinion.
