I'm not very interested in fighting over the icca - my views are known, 
they haven't changed.

True. What do we know ?


1. That Mchess is not playing, is not on any icca list that has been 
circulated to participants.

 2. That's it, that's all we know


What do we guess at ?


1. That Mchess applied late ?

 2. That there may be a financial problem with finding $1000, re the 
Stamer business last year ?

 3. That maybe Mchess is no 1 on the reserve list ?

 4. That maybe Mchess haad been arguing over the $1000 for some time 
before the deadline ?

 5. That the icca have a problem with Peter, re Thorsten's allegations 

 6. Maybe some more speculation ?


Much speculation. Maybe none of this, maybe more.  If Peter Screiner 
comes in (see other threads) he can tell us.
