The video is stopping/buffering all the time. Is it just me or there is something happening with the cv server?
(I'm downloading the video to view it later without the annoying interruptions)

It's not just you flea. Yesterdays was bad too, but todays is unwatchable. I don't know how your d/ling it (maybe with a premium membership idk, I don't have a bank/credit card so that option is out for me). O well. Better luck next time I guess, I'm not going to complain really though, I have got some good videos for one year anyways...

Thanks for the info emstrem. I was using the "downloadhelper" firefox addon to download the video but it was sooooooooooo slow that I have canceled it. If this is happening to everybody I am sure the admins here will do something about it since it ruins completely the point of this website. So I'll check later :-)

There was a post by admin earlier today where he said that there are some server issues. He moved the 1st curtains vid to a different server though, so that is watchable. The post doesn't seem to be there any longer, but I hope admin will move this vid here too, if the server troubles continue. I'm sure he does his best.

Finally I could watch the video, and it was great, as always! A 77 minutes video was probably better than a 145 minutes video, unless you want to add crazy comments and stuff. Regarding sometimes watching a game from the black sides point of view, that's OK with me :D as long as you do it from the beginning and don't swtich in the middle of the game. Thanks!

Not working for me, after minute 25 nothing works?! First 25 minutes were great though. Looking forward to see the rest :roll: .

edit: It works now, that's great.

I hoped you'd do the Svidler game, but the Aronian ending was also very entertaining.

I apologize for the problems, still some ongoing issues with out webhost. I have moved this video over to amazon hosting, so it should be good now.

Watched the whole thing without a problem.
Thx admin for fixing the thing so quickly and nice. :thumleft:

This is a great way to follow a tournament, thx Greg, very entertaining.
Point of view question: It's ok for me to flip the board whenever you feel like.

Great coverage, as always. :D

I don't think the Grand Prix is harebrained. The problem apparently is getting all the events sponsored, so FIDE messed up there, but I think the idea itself is OK, don't you want more top events where not just the same old top ten get a chance? Or maybe you mean as a qualifier? In that respect I have long ago given up trying to figure out all these events and what they mean in the "cycle". Anand is world champion, that much I know. ;)

Point of view; I don't care, if anything changing pov makes it more interesting.

Mamedyarov and cheating accusations: this has been a hot topic and I am not going to go into a discussion about this, but I can perfectly understand Mamedyarov. Maybe it was wrong, but understandable. (He should not have written that second letter though, by then he should have seen the writing on the wall, or maybe he does not read chess blogs.)
Don't forget that he also at the same time withdrew from the tournament, so it's not like he profited in any way. Big question: If you for some reason are sure your opponent is cheating, you just stay silent? That seems absurd to me. (And btw: computer cheating IS an issue to be taken seriously, it IS possible and deadly if used, don't get me started. [Which I won't.])

Wikipedia: anybody can make edits you know. ;) Quick, somebody post a funny picture up there! :D

in regards to editing my wiki page: I know but I refuse to touch my own wiki page, that makes you automatic loser.
