|Jun-08-12|| ||Blunderdome: Doesn't work in any browser :( I'm using pgn4web but it doesn't let me enter my own variations, which is less fun.|

|Jun-09-12|| ||Stonehenge: I have had serious viruses a couple of times when using Java. I don't use that anymore, so I can't look at games here anymore.|
|Jun-09-12|| ||chessgames.com: <AlienMath> Good post, thanks.|
<Stonehenge> By all means, switch to pgn4web if need be. It doesn't allow for manipulating the pieces on the board, but it's better than nothing at all.
It is also possible with some technical wizardry to make it so that the "download PGN" link will actually invoke a third party program. If you can arrange that with a good chess program (Fritz, etc.) it's probably even a better choice than Chess Viewer Deluxe. We've never tried to explain how this is done in our documentation because the methods vary wildly from browser to browser (and OS to OS).
|Jun-09-12|| ||chessgames.com: Especially in light of the recent Java vulnerabilities, the day will probably come when we are forced to abandon Java as a default. |
We're still looking for a really good Flash-based PGN viewer that is either in the public domain or can be licensed for a reasonable fee. If anybody knows of one please let us know.
|Jun-10-12|| ||Eyal: <CG> In the live broadcast page for the 4th round of the Tal Memorial you have the colors wrong - Morozevich should be White and Radjabov Black.|
|Jun-10-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <chessgames.com> If you guys are seriously considering switching from Java to something else, I ask you with the utmost respect to not switch to Flash.
There are many people who use operating systems - I was in that boat recently - that are incompatible with Flash due to graphics/upgrades/etc.|
The cool thing about Java is that you can run it with virtually any operating system and it will always be reliable.
Really, there is no problem with viewing the games in Java format; what I would recommend as an improvement for CG, would actually be two things:
a) The ability to allow members to play blitz games in real-time.
b) During live transmissions to be able to view all games in a particular tournament instead of simply one featured game.
PS. An important note regarding Java: Through time as Java keeps updating and reupdating itself, sometimes different versions stay installed on the computer.
Something that has worked for me in the past is going to my list of programs ready to be "uninstalled/repaired" and ensuring that I have only one version of Java installed.
If you have multiple versions of Java on there and doubts as to which may be your best bet, simply uninstall all of them and then go to www.java.com to install the latest version - once again, that has helped me in the past!

|Jun-10-12|| ||chessgames.com: <Morozevich should be White and Radjabov Black.> Oh do we? So sorry, will attend to shortly.|
|Jun-10-12|| ||chessgames.com: <LoveThatJoker> Thank you very much for your well considered suggestions.|
|Jun-11-12|| ||WannaBe: First thing we should do, shoot all the virus writers, then the lawyers. =)|
|Jun-11-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <chessgames.com> Thank you for the kind acknowledgment!|
|Jun-11-12|| ||OhioChessFan: Idle curiosity.......why is the listing for recent kibtizing on the home page different than the listing of most recent posts on the new kibitzing link?|
|Jun-11-12|| ||chessgames.com: The homepage is recomputed every so many minutes (5 I think?) where Recent Kibitzing Page is updated instantly. Plus the homepage has a few rules designed to prevent a one-person posting spree from dominating the entire list.|
|Jun-11-12|| ||twinlark: Hi <ceegee>
<<Albena Masters> aka <Golden Sands> aka <Grand Europe Open> Golden Sands (2012)>
Not quite. The link I posted you had been updated by the time you got to it, and the Albena Masters replaced by Golden Sands. This link should clarify, you'll see the two tournamants reported side by side:
Apologies for not posting this earlier, but I had to leave town in a hurry.
|Jun-11-12|| ||Annie K.: <twinlark: <Apologies for not posting this earlier, but I had to leave town in a hurry.>>|
I heard it can be dangerous to know too much... ;)
|Jun-11-12|| ||hms123: <Annie> Is <twinlark> <The Man Who Knew Too Much>?|
|Jun-11-12|| ||Annie K.: <hms> oh, he knows more than that, much, much, more...|
Uh, speaking of chess, I wonder when all those improvements we've been discussing for the Kibitzing Search will be implemented...? No hurry, of course. ;)
|Jun-11-12|| ||twinlark: <Annie K.>
<I heard it can be dangerous to know too much... ;).>
Sorry. Can't answer that: Top Secret.
|Jun-11-12|| ||chessgames.com: <twinlark> Oh I see, that makes more sense. I was starting to think "Golden Sands" was the name of a hotel or something. Thx.|
|Jun-11-12|| ||twinlark: You're welcome.|
|Jun-12-12|| ||Benzol: From The Biographer Bistro :
<<chessgames.com> <Of course we know we won't get every number filled in overnight, but the good news is that our software that imports FIDE data will never become confused by the "other" Vladimir Malakhov ever again, so I'll never have to edit Malakhov's rating by hand again.>>
Does this mean that you'll be able retroactively to weed out games that have been placed in the incorrect playerfiles as well?
|Jun-12-12|| ||chessgames.com: <Does this mean that you'll be able retroactively to weed out games that have been placed in the incorrect playerfiles as well?> I wish it could, but the games already imported have to be dealt with as-is. Perhaps I overstated the situation when I said "we'll never mix up the two Malakhovs again"--I meant, in the context of the rating-update file from FIDE, and some other contexts as well.|
Some PGN includes FIDE player numbers, and we are in the process of making our software suddenly become sensitive to this information. So this fix could eliminate that kind of problem in the future, but it doesn't help us much with what's already been done.
|Jun-13-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <chessgames.com> This article was one of the featured articles on your homepage,|
It would be awesome to see some games by this precocious American Chess talent!
