    jealous detune. i am so jealous

    LOL.  Don't be jealous.  If you look at all the moves, the opponent played slightly worse than I did, and on the last move I realized 'Hey..I haven't castled yet...better do that quick."  And BAM!  Checkmate.  So no skill involved whatsoever...

    BTW...how do you post moves with the little viewer like you did at the beginning of the post?

    when you post, you see that chess board along that bar above your text? you click that, and it'll guide you through. you can use a pgn file in it too!
