Great day for FICGS (and for me :)) !

Hello all...

As you may know, I built the major part of FICGS with a 33 kbps (actually more looking like a 5 to 8 kbps) broadband which is very very slow, even slower than the prehistorical modems... Internet is definitely not a priority in the french campaign (by the way, looks like nothing is not a priority anymore in the french campaign)

Since today, I've got 2 Mbps anyway (thanks to WiMax and Powerline technologies), which means several things :

- Regular freestyle cups (finally !)
- New improvements more regularly.
- I can play advanced chess :)

After a few days of vacation, I should be more active on the server, definitely :)

Hi Thibault:

This is great news indeed. I can imagine being on the slow side of an Internet connection for such a long time :-(.

Yes, the most funny is that it's the main reason why I tried to play correspondence chess, cause I couldn't play on most servers without losing on time because of this **** broadband :/

what does it mean - "french campaign"?

Actually I'm not sure about the word :) .. Is campaign "a place far from the cities" ?

Countryside, rural region or remote location is the closest translation.

Coooountryside, that's the word... Thanks.

Wow, I remember how it is. I had a modem running over a broken phone line until couple of years ago.

Instead of countryside, what about wilderness?

Campaign normally means a contest for elections. The period where the politicians attempt to woo you for your vote.

Another definition for campaign is military, and describe a series of battles with a common aim. Such as Hitler's campaign into Russia (which was a dismal failure in the end).
