  1. MODDING NEWS - Steam workshop hit by zero MB bug, reuploading only solution

    by , October 31, 2018 at 01:49 AM (Tall an' handsome)
    As of a couple of hours ago the Steam workshop has been giving problems - it manifests itself as showing a zero file size for assorted mods and subscribing won't do anything. A related problem is that you may not be able to remove the mod if you are already subscribed - other then manually removing it.

    If you have a mod like that contact it's author and make him aware of the solution underneath:

    Simply modify your upload to change the byte size and then push it to Steam ...

    Enter the SnakePit.

    21:30 Saturday night. He exits the metro with his Sister in law, her sister and two friends and they make their way down from the elevated metro station. The venue is only a three-minute walk removed from the station. The road is full with likeminded people who are downing a few drinks before the venue opens. At the stop light he looks in front of him where some people stand grouped, he instantly recognizes one as the best friend of Anouk. He taps his sister ...

  3. Hitai Talks About Chess: Chigorin vs Chigorin?!

    When I play with the black pieces in chess, I tend to favour two particular defences. The first, and by far and away the most common, is my reply to 1.e4, which is d6, otherwise known as the Pirc Defence. The second is my reply to 1.d4, which is the Chigorin Defence (1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nc6).

  5. Hitai Talks About Chess: Problems in the English Opening

    Well I haven't updated this in a while, so why not brush the cobwebs off this old blog and write something interesting.

    Back in the day, folks used to play chess on TWC. We had chess tournaments and there was even a member of Gaming Staff responsible for chess related matters (a good buddy of mine actually, who has sadly been absent in recent times).
