Knight Sight begins

Just completed the Concentric Squares exercise for two weeks. I begin the Knight Sight exercise today.
In the meantime, I am playing two games with ChessSmith and one with Mr. Charles Thayer.
I am trying to register my TASC Chess Tutor software online. However, both their site and email id are non-functional. Can the other Knight Errants please tell me how they registered their software?

Update: Apart from chess, family and consultancy, I have been busy setting up a blog that would help people understand blogging, software and technology - Appliblog. Do check it out.

6th June 2005 - Some of you have been asking me, as to how I use Flickr to upload my chess images. So here it is - You will first need a free Flickr account. Create one and log into the same. Click on the 'Upload Photos' option on the main page. Click on Browse and select the image you want to upload from your hard-disk. Add tags for the image eg. chess. Choose privacy setting as Public and then upload the photo. After the photo has been uploaded, add a Title and Description and click on SAVE. Your image should now appear on Flickr. Click on the image; a new page appears. Scroll down till you see 'See different sizes'. Click on the same. You will see Square, Thumbnail, Small, Medium, Large. Select the size you want. Now scroll down till you see 'Copy and paste this HTML into your webpage'. Cut/Paste this piece of html into you blog template. That's it.

Strange. Probably they have sold the company. I think I should post this on some forum. Let's see.

I too used to use Picasa and Hello before Flickr. Flickr has a downloadable utily for uploading photos to your Flickr account. Use that. I still sometimes use Picasa for arranging photos on my hard disk.

I have not used Palview, but from what I just read it seems that we will not be able to install the same on Blogger/Blogspot as there are files / databases that would be required and Blogger does not have the facility. I have seen another Javascript program that does the same without databases.
