I have solved a similar problem: interfacing a Sapphire II to WinBoard, allowing
it to participate as a robot on FICS.  In this case, the Winboard plugin
simulates the AutoBoard.  You would like a plugin which simulates the Sapphire
(or other Novag computer) so it could interface the the AutoBoard.  It would be
easy for me to do, but I don't have an Autoboard to test it with.

Donations of an Autoboard would be gladly accepted.  :)

If you have an AutoBoard, and know some programming, I suggest you take a look
at these sites to create your own WinBoard interface:
