Hi, Thibault -- I'm being logged out rather quickly again. I log in, take a few minutes to decide on a move but when I make the move, I am told to try again. I thought the practice of being logged out automatically had ended a while back.

Hi Don, quite strange indeed... Was the message box above the chat bar ok when it happened ? If not refreshed normally, you may be logged out after a while, unless you go to another page... Just tell me if the problem persists.

It happened to me few times because my Internet connection was down for few seconds. When I tried to access other link on the website I was told to try again. Maybe the server resets the connection if the Internet is down?
Thibault de Vassal (2008-01-25 23:14:05)
It may happen if your internet address has changed. Or after a while, if your session has finished (because the message box was not refreshed)

Hi, Thib -- it just happened again. It's been happening regularly just in the past few days. I use Firefox on a Mac with OS X, which shouldn't matter, but I know sometimes does ;-)
Thibault de Vassal (2008-01-27 05:21:40)
Well, well, well... Do you know if the message box was still active (message scrolling) just before you clicked and disconnected ? Salut Don :)
Don Groves (2008-01-27 06:44:11)
I think it was scrolling. I'll pay closer attention from now on ;-)

Hi Thibault -- It seems much more forgiving now, did you make a change?
Thibault de Vassal (2008-02-03 22:29:35)
Definitely, no !
I'm sure it is not your imagination though ;) .. I've no explanation !?
Don Groves (2008-02-04 00:18:53)
I do have an active imagination ;-) It must be an obscure interaction with Firefox on OS X. It is very sensitive to extra keystrokes on FICGS. If I accidentally hit a second key while waiting for FICGS, Firefox hangs (only on the FICGS tab) and must be restarted to fix the problem.

I have been getting a couple of log outs lately, if that helps to 'solve' the problem.
Don Groves (2008-02-04 05:12:27)
Maybe it's a rotating problem so as not to bother one user excessively ;-)
Garvin Gray (2008-02-04 10:37:26)
Hi Don, I wonder when it will be Thibault's turn :P
Thibault de Vassal (2008-02-04 14:28:15)
Ok, I'm done... Don's right, actually each week I add some new rotating bugs so that players don't use FICGS excessively :o)
(next one: disconnection just before to post a long message in the forum - called the "Don's bug" :))
Don Groves (2008-02-04 23:18:00)
Ha! I've already learned that lesson. Now I save long posts frequently ;-)
