About Nothing But Chess
What is Nothing But Chess?At it's most basic, www.nothingbutchess.com is a chess site devoted to nothing but online chess. However, we hope that you'll also hang out within the chat rooms and just...hang out! Talk about anything. The new cool link your friend sent you. Street Fighter IV. The latest rival to the iPhone. You can even talk about chess if you want. It doesn't matter, just hang out!
The site and rules engine have been coded in PHP with a MySQL backend. It conforms to standard chess and includes what anyone would expect, including:
- Draw by repetition
- Draw by stalemate
- En passant
Pretty much everything that's to be expected from a real chess engine. New users are started off with a rating of 1200.
Who's behind Nothing But Chess?
Armando G. ColpaArmando likes to dabble in a lot of things! With a degree in Mechanical Engineering from City College of the City University of New York, he likes building creative works. That can be things you can touch such as a tool shed he built from scratch (including creating the plans) or games like the code behind the ajax-based chess game on www.nothingbutchess.com. Translation: You can send any bugs you find on the site to bigyellow.
