This computerized chess opponent certainly has its intimidation style locked in. I think I'm about to get my ass kicked.

Ha! I love it! You're right, points go for intimidation, but what a great graphic way to see all the moves! I half expected a voice to pop up with every move, 'I am going to crush you!' or 'You're still playing? fool!'. kudos to that site!

I found it kind of annoying - kind of like a hyperactive kid that kept moving a piece to take you, then taking it back and trying out another move - it's hard to see the board and think of my next move because the Thinking Machine is scurrying it's grubby fingers all over the place!
