My 2c on Mike's post(s):

- most of your problems comes from the graphics drivers issue. I wouldn't
develop workarounds for that but rather solve it (Jon is on it).

- 2 buttons for resign and reject is totally fine according to GUI standards:
they are 2 distinct actions. If we make only one, how do we label it ?
"Resing/Reject" ? Or have a label that dynamically changes between reject and
resign ? Both bad imho. 2 buttons is fine (one grayed outwhen appropriate is

- what's 'the score' you would like to see along the match ? Your FIBS rating ?
Your Error rate ? Both would be almost pointless, even more if they take into
account all your past matches (they would barely move during one match after
you have played, say, 100 matches).

- the wild swings in FIBS rating are unavoidable: estimating your (FIBS) rating
with a single match (most often a short/mid one) is essentially impossible.
You will have to look at long term averages.

- forum/mailing list: I know I will be labelled as "old school" but I wouldn't
trade the currnt mailing list for a fancier forum. The mailing list is a developper
maliling list. No real need for structure (topic, subtopic, subsubtopic) and/or
fancy emoticons, singatures etc. Plain text is also enforced (I believe).
However, if anybody wants to create a forum for gnubg users around the world,
this could be a good idea.
