Found this site via a C|Net article [http://www.news.com/Social-networking-through-online-chess/1606-2_3-6232533.html?part=rss&tag=2547-1_3-0-20&subj=news] and I think I might have a replacement for my usual itsyourturn.com [ http://itsyourturn.com ] games. I agree with the article in that the folk here seem to have done a nice job connecting the chess world with a good social network. I think one plus is that the site doesn't seem to be browser dependent (I'm using Safari on a Mac which tends to be very icky with editing windows such as the one I'm typing in now...though, there's no problems. Also, the online chess didn't even hesitate in loading or in performance). Update: well, the link button hangs and isn't functional.
Well, back to my first online game.
