GF1: Kurt Van den
Maybe you already downloaded GF1, the free GIPF-program you can
find elsewhere on this site. In case you didn't, it's not too late.
If you already did, then don't forget to send Kurt Van den Branden
a postcard. That's what the man asks in return. Do you remember
what a postcard is? A piece of cardboard with a picture of a sunset
or so at the front site and a written address and a stamp on the
back site. Send it to:

Van de Perre
His title: le Maître des Points. He, being a former competition
chess player (still is…) , sacrificed himself to be responsible
for converting the results of all the officially played games into
a ranking list. If you have questions about the ratings - e.g. you're
not happy with your Elo-points -, he's the one who'll explain why
things are what they are.
