Sorry guys, but I think europe-echecs should really reconsider where it hosts its videos.
Every time I try to see a video of them it;s really slow or it just freezes.
It just sucks cause I think that Mr. Fontaine does really nice videos (if you neglect the horrible accent :D)

It's great to see Karpov running for the presidency. PR-wise for sure--hopefully it'll be action-wise, too. Good luck, 12th!
