Re: This place is a mess...
Thanks to post my game Ecotopia: if you reproduce the game u will realize that from move 22 i could not make those moves since the possition of my pieces would not make it possible...ergo: he made those 3 moves by himself in a row!!...haha...that way I am sure I can beat Gladiator!....well 2 of 5....maybe!

Re: This place is a mess...
.. Does Costa Rica, have a satellite link, to the Internet? .. One guess, for your delay; Could be; That your phone lines might have to cross your giant northern neighbor, of Mexico.
 
One scenario, for the unacceptable time-lag; Is that your land-line connection, {if that's what it is?}; Is being 'monitored' or 'tapped'; By, 2 or 3 different governments!; Your native country, Mexico; And the 'US'! .. I take it, {BladeRunner}, that your online chess games; Are Not a 'cover,' for nefarious activities!? --

Re: This place is a mess...
The site lag is making gameplay a joke. 10-20 second lag is common on almost every game many days. Don't blame the internet, my connection or anything else but the backend on Caissa. Fix it people.

Re: This place is a mess...
Right John!...I guess is not me only,eh??
 
This is really a checkmate for G2 and G1 games... and specially for me where my biggest weapon is the speed I must concede better moves for strong players like you...
 
...very particulary is guys like Nikko who enjoys lags of 30 to 40 secs!...wow..that must be christmas gift from Brian....
 
Anyway: Happy holidays!

Re: This place is a mess...
Very true Guillermo.
 
Speed of thought is the essence of g/2, isn't it? With a very high lag time, the whole of the game is reduced to anticipating what the lag will be, and how long you'll have to wait. I had a G/2 game recently that took at least 20 real time minutes. Now that I think of it - it might have been against Nikko, lol.

Re: This place is a mess...
I'm curious...the "Lag counter" in the top RH corner of the screen reads them off in "ms" units....what are those ?

Re: This place is a mess...
"ms," is the abbreviation for milliseconds, {or one-thousandth of a second}, 'lag'; If it reads '1.'
 
So, if for example; Your screen reads: "500 ms"; The delay involved, from it being transmitted, from the 'Caissa' server, {computer sender & receiver}, in Houston Texas, {I'd imagine}; Involves, half a second, of non-instant, gratification.
 
.. Even if it could be faster; I doubt that our brains would detect it!
Although obviously; There are sufficient examples of annoyingly long time delays, on this site!
 
For instance; 'Rocky,' from, Puerto Rico {for example}; Literally has his clock gain seconds, whenever I play him. It wasn't until recently, that other peoples' posts Re. this 2 min. game lag, made me realize; That he {Rocky} really is Not, a 'time cheat'/hacker-genius!
 
Anyway; With his chosen 'avatar,' being a posing boxer; That by itself, should tell anyone, that he's No 'Einstein'! --

Re: This place is a mess...
.. Thanks, for your feedback reply 'BR.' Now, "Niburu,' or Planet X, according to my under-
standing; Will steer wide of our planet, in 6-to-8 months; And all because you took the time to reply! -
Re. my previous reference to boxing; I concede, that it can be fun to watch; But, personally; Not as fun as it used to be for me. The same goes for watching American football.
 
Ps.- No parentheses, here! In a similar vein; St. Paul, once made reference to himself not eating meat, in the presence of vegetarians; Or some similar approach. Lest it be a 'stumbling block' to those he was trying to outreach, to. A good 'rule-of-thumb'; In the sense of: "going along, to get along"; Among more stark examples.

Re: This place is a mess...
I'm having new and infuriating problems with lag times. Erratic, fluctuating lags that might go from a consistent 1 or 2 during a game, to 30 and 40 in a tight, 2 or 5 minute game. Admin ignores my emessage complaints. my membership is due in February and before I reup, I"m going to call the office and find out what they're doing about this.
