  I'll check ExChess and Sjeng. BTW, do they both use the newst tb format? I
expect Sjeng to do it, since it's under development, but it's been quite some
time since last Dan's version.
  And about being specific, I can't. Suppose you want to install an air
conditioning system in your house. You know what you want (IE. where to put the
devices, what zones of the house to cool, etc.) and you know exactly what's your
house like, but you know nothing about air conditioning devices nor installing.
What do you do? You need something to start with, sort of a guide that tells you
what to buy, where to put everything, how to connect devices, how to get'em
running. But if you have to make an specific question you just can say "... what
shall I do first? what steps should I follow?".
