Subject: handling ICC timeout

Author: Jon Dart

chessclub.com (ICC) drops a connection after 60 minutes of inactivity. It's not
uncommon for my program to go 60 minutes without a match and it will then go
offline. Does anyone have a way of getting around this? (I can think of several,
from running an "at" script to modifying xboard, but I'm wondering if this
problem has been solved before). I mostly run on Linux these days but would be
interested in a solution that worked on Windows as well.

B.t.w. freechess.org (FICS) doesn't have the 60 minute limit.
