I honestly feel sorry for people who spend their lives on some online chess site. Sensible people log in once a day and log out, but all day?..day after day ...all day??? Get a life!

Hey -- the whole point is that you can play when you have a few minutes -- it doesn't even have to be in real-time -- the game switches to PBM mode automatically.
