Phoon!!! I read your thoughts on the chess thing.... I actually CONTACTED Tim Mann (the author of xboard) about the idea of creating a GTK+ port (not quite the same as GL, but similar porting problem) and he seemed to feel that the xboard source wasn't really in quite the shape in ought to be for such a project. He suggested a better approach might be to reimplement xboards protocols (ICS, crafty, etc.) from scratch..... I would very much like to see that happen with an eye towards PLUGGABLE front-ends... then you could do your GL version, and I could do my GTK+ version. I started writing a GTK+ board widget but abandoned it in favor of the job search I very much wished to complete.

And Fear Factor is kinda cool, imho. I don't dig the long-term reality shows much, so it's cool seeing people fail in the span of 3 or 4 commercial breaks. :) They could do without the worms and stuff, though.
