My error.
Jun-04-14  ljfyffe: That is, NEW Brunswick, Canada. Narraway was born (nee) in Nova Scotia; G. Frederick Fisher, in Maine, USA. Fred (Fisher, that is) has artificial lakes named after him-the Fisher Lakes-, built with the assistance, I believe, of convict labour. He was mayor of Saint John, NB.

Jul-04-14  Nicocobas: How is the illegal use of computers in correspondence games dealt with? This wasn't a problem in 1929 but it could be now.

  JointheArmy: <Nicocobas> Was pretty sure most correspondence chess allows engines.
Jul-04-14  Nicocobas: <JointheArmy> Thanks. By the way, I joined the Army in 1969, prehistoric days.
Jul-04-14  ljfyffe: To whom it may concern: Computers likely sounded the death knell for correspondence chess as we once knew it, especially with the introduction of the internet. Marshall McLuhan, what are you doin'?
