WooHoo! Can't believe the day is finally here. This is nuts, tonight we are sitting down and playing chess with 1/4 of the reason that this board exists. Good luck guys, I'll be watching and chatting and such.

I haven't been paying much attention to this, since I don't play chess, but is mike actually going to go online tonight and play chess with us? This doesn't seem real to me.

good job astral. this is going to be so sick I can't believe it. These kind of things are going to put us above the other big boards on the internet, if they haven't already.

There's also a note on jambands.com from April 18th news about the game. phish.net is one thing, but jambands.com is even more noteriety for the OKP!!!!
