I thought that the 15 minute timeout was controlled by FIBS server and not the client code so I don't see how Fibzilla could by pass this.
This is a feature I had noticed, I am not sure if it is intentional or not. FIBs times you out if you are inactive..so my best guess is that FIBzilla does something on a regular basis that tells fibs you are still active [even if you aren't involved in that..a time request maybe?].
It is useful, but over rides the intent of the timeout, so admin isn't keen on that.
For me, it just doesn't swing the choice..the timeouts dont bother me at all. If I'm watching a match, actively, I will be chatting or whispering, or can just send a 'time' command, or toggle ready / not ready every so often. I realise others find them a pain, but not me. That is considered one of the main advantages of tigergammon.
By 'WE', I do not mean everyone, I mean those who favour Javafibs...by default, if you don't worship javafibs, you are not one of the 'we'..Imagine a primary school class learning set theory. They may all move into groups according to likes or dislikes..the group who likes Star Trek may well describe themselves as 'we all like Star Trek'...simples
