Hi Mike
Yes, the ones that appear in my picture are made from two old magnetic sets that I had. By the way, if you look at the first photo you will see that Le Grande Citrine has modyfied larger pieces. Originally, they didn't have magnets so I used the ones from a spare set of Citrine ones that Novag sent me.
Hi Tom
Many, many years ago I wrote a graphical chess database called 'The Chess Data System' that ran on the Sinclair Spectrum 48K. I used to play in World & European correspondence chess tournaments and used to keep a record of them on my system.
More recently I have produced the 'Challenger' piece sets for most of the chess programs for the Pocket PC & Palm. Unfortunatey, the authors like to modify them a little which I think spoils them slightly. They screenshot of the forthcoming ChessGenius for the iPhone is my latest offering and Richard hasn't yet modyfied them.
Regard
Bryan

Hi all
Just thought you'd like to see what's been happening down in my garden shed these past few months.
Sorry about the quality of the photos in advance.
Here's the link.

Bryan, did you make the "Le Grande Citrine" yourself, because I've never seen it before. Anyway, you've apparently got a nice garden!


O.k., Bryan, I was just searching for "garden shed" in this forum and found out that you made the Grand Citrine yourself. That's why my question is answered. You seem to be sort of programmer, aren't you?

Great stuff Bryan. This shed of yours comes up with some amazing ideas.

Will the 2Robot work with other sets of pieces?

All the best
Mike
