Your Move/Readers Write: Flummoxed by Crosstabs; Next Best Thing to Being There; More On the Gmail Fix

Flummoxed by Crosstabs: “I am flummoxed,” writes Jean de Maiffe. “The E-J says ‘Click here for complete U.S. Open results and game records. Click here for final results and game records from the NAMT and SPO tournaments’ but I clicked on each of the three links and never got to any game records.  What am I missing? By the way, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed looking through the results of tournaments.  My eyes lit up every time I saw a familiar name with a face I could put to it.  You and your team have done your usual fine job, and we, your audience, are duly appreciative, I’m sure.”
You need to look for any result that’s underlined. For example, in the US Open Crosstab, Zi Yang Hu’s Round 1 game — W14+ — is underlined, and when you click on it, the game record will come up. Since only top boards were recorded, just click on “Player” at the top left to put them in player order and you should be able to find the game records easily. We’re happy that tracking the results was interesting and useful!

Next Best Thing to Being There: “Thanks so much to the E-Journal staff for the great coverage of the Congress!” writes Laura Kolb Moon. “I wish I could have been there in person, but the E-Journal stories and live KGS coverage of top boards made the week fun anyway. A special thanks to the game recorders who not only shared the games with the world but also provided comments about the players’ actions and appearance that made it possible to imagine being right there watching the game.”
So glad we could bring the Congress to those who could not be there; thanks for reading and watching! photo: The EJ’s Andrew Jackson records a NAMT game; photo by Phil Straus

More On the Gmail Fix: “You can fix gmail going into the wrong tab by simply dragging the email into the right tab,” writes Paul Mitchell. “Gmail will ask you if you want to do that with all email from that source, and if you answer yes then all email from that source will be routed to the tab you selected.”
