The following pictures were taken with a Hitachi MP-EG1A digital camera. The images are a little bit fuzzy and the colours are not very brilliant, because the light was not the best. It was the first time I borrowed that nice piece of hardware. The next time, I will provide some more powerful lamps...

We used a Pentium 166 MHz with 64 MB RAM, 17" Monitor and 28.8 Modem. It was temporarily moved on top of my HiFi-Tower.

During the game I fixed several papers on my monitor, containing the ICC account and the board number. The biggest problem for me was to get instantly the information from the screen and map it to the actual players' move. Later I fixed also some small red triangles on the screen very close to the clock of our players: the blue/red signal means, it is our turn to move at this board.
1. Moeller - Retera 0-1 2. van Rijn - Semmelroth 0-1 3. Krause - van de Berg 1-0 4. Bijvank - Hein 0-1 5. Springer - Spoelstra ½-½ 6. Wissink - Kesslau 0-1
The reactions of our team was overwhelming:
