OK, thanks, I'll find an overview of django and take a look.----- Original Message ----- From: "Tyler Littlefield" <tyler@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 You could use a django framework with wsgi, and build a framework for managing boards of x dementions with different sets of logic. Maybe the framework would just store the board, and you'd have plugins that could handle the logic.

I have little experience or knowledge in this area and am looking for suggestions of what is possible.I am reasonably certain that whatever it is, I want users to be able to do it through a browser. My primary goals are that the solution be universally accessible, simple and robust.Richard----- Original Message ----- From: Homme, JamesTo: programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, October 21, 2010 12:52 PM Subject: RE: What are good technologies for two player game servers? Hi Richard,How exactly would this work? I'm asking because I saw a content control system that is built to handle a chess club on the internet, but I'm not sure if it has the features you are looking for. I know that you have my personal e-mail address and Skype ID. We can talk about it later on tonight. I will try to find it and send you the link to it.Jim Jim Homme, Usability Services, Phone: 412-544-1810. Skype: jim.hommeInternal recipients, Read my accessibility blog. Discuss accessibility here.

Hi All,What sort of internet technologies are well suited to build a server for two player games.I am considering developing a server system for controlling on going chess games, that is keeping track of all the moves so far, the time used by each player and so forth all via a text web interface. Many games would be in progress at the same time and so each on-going game would be in a database that is updated as new moves arrive.I have been looking at just using something simple like cgi scripted pages with form controls generated at the server by Python, but that seems a little clunky.Can anyone suggest suitable technologies for me to look at?I have a good knowledge of Python, C++ and C, but will always consider learning a new language if desirable like PHP or even PERL.Also I want to use a web hosting service not run my own server. So I am looking for something commonly available.Richard ------------------------------------------------------------------------------This e-mail and any attachments to it are confidential and are intended solely for use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
