Good game  thumbsup.gif

I was holding out for the chance to get a stalemate, didn't think I was going to manage it for a while there.

I was convinced you were going to end up with two queens  laugh.gif

I know, I saw it for a while too, I was really hoping the exchange of knights would make it easier to keep track of your queen and stop it. But in the end you were too determined to get it, and I just couldn’t stop it grin2.gif

I wasn’t actually to interested in getting a second queen, I was really just hoping if it was close enough to queening you’d concentrate on it rather than go for my back rank grin2.gif …. Didn’t work wacko.gif

I can't get past this page, the links just don't work. It complains about ActiveX but I already have all that enables.

Are you running any firewalls or anti-virus programs ?

Try disabling them temporarily to see if it helps, if not then at least that eliminates them as the cause.

I'm not sure what else to suggest, there is obviously a problem with your ActiveX / Security settings in IE, I think you'll just need to tweak them until the problem is resolved.
