Hacked by Sakab

Sorry about the down time. Sakab seems to be an Iranian malcontent with nothing better to do than pointlessly hack non-commercial websites. Hopefully he won’t be back.

He has, however, made me aware of the security issues with WordPress, so I suppose that is useful.

The DGT 2010 was introduced in 2007 and received the status of “Official FIDE chess clock” in June 2008 after tests by four top-level arbiters concluded that the clock is in full accordance with all FIDE rules and regulations.
