yes it's down -- check out Fibs status on Fibsboard front page (left hand margin)That page doesn't actually seem to say anything. It has a few nonloading images. Neither does twitter/fibsdotcom say anything.
You can check Fibs Facebook page at:Seems to imply that FIBS is gone forever.
Would be better if someone in the know just gave a specific answer please.

We are looking for any Gammonites who play or are interested in playing Fantasy Premier League for this coming season (English football).
It's an interesting mix of strategy, knowledge, tactics and luck - much like backgammon
If you are interested..
1. Please click and create your FPL account at https://fantasy.premierleague.com
2. Pick your team (Lukaku, Aguero, Harry Kane etc)
3. Click to join our new Facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/FantasyBackgammonUnited/
Once you have done this we will provide further details on how to complete joining our custom league (the last step will be very easy).
Hope to see you there!

Backgammon Studio keeps improving and I have updated the version number to 4.1 with these fine improvements:
Backgammon Studio 4.1
Improvements since 4.0:
The biggest news is perhaps the support for mobile portrait mode. Previously it wasn't supported and looked pretty bad. Now it isn't too shabby!
This also means the home screen needs to learn a couple of new tricks. You can now specify two different layouts for the portrait and landscape mode. I used the same content in the above two pictures but you can also specify completely different ones for each mode.
You should also add Backgammon Studio to your home screen on your mobile phone to get rid of the Browser UI which takes up a lot of screen space on mobiles: On mobile
There is some support for other languages but it is hard to tell if the quality of the translation is any good or not. Google translate is not always spot on. Please let me know if you spot something that looks just wrong!
I also took the opportunity to brush up the quiz input as the old radio buttons worked rather poorly on mobiles. And didn't look very good on desktop either when I think of it...
Oh hey! More training tracks! There seems to be an unlimited amount of novel ways to make a mistake on the Backgammon Board! I keep making all of them so I'm not running out of ideas for new training tracks any time soon! :-)
New actiontags to be used in training tracks is a must! Initially I called this golden anchors but Mary Hickey corrected me on this pointing out that this term has already been reserved for the opponent 5 point anchor.
Tournament manager support! It is now possible for other users to run tournaments (Please ask me if you would like to run tournaments on Backgammon Studio).
Support for unlimited games!
There is now an overview of the PR performance of your last 100 games. If you haven't played 100 matches you don't qualify for this list yet. I see the picture was taken before this was changed.
The lobby menu now contains easy access to more online match related sections as some of them could be hard to find unless you knew where to look.
There is now more info (click on the question button at the top right corner) regarding online match types.
Got any questions or feedback? Don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Think something sux (like the UI)? Let me know or I may just think everything is awesome!
Spotted something that looks wrong? Take a screenshot and email it to me. That can help a lot in locating the problem!
The number of online matches played on Backgammon Studio is soon reaching 10000! (Another week/week and a half or so) Haven't tried it yet? You're missing out! :-)
There are still users who end up using an invalid email address when registering a user on Backgammon Studio. When trying to contact these users I get a:
which is unfortunate as there is no way for me to contact this person. If you never heard anything back from Backgammon Studio please email me directly at email@example.com and I'll help you create an account! It is worth the effort! Honest!
Backgammon Studio The Swiss army knife of backgammon!
Haven't tried Backgammon Studio yet? You should! :-)
How is everyone doing? I've missed being on FIBS. Anything interesting happening? Any new rules? Any new leaders in ratings? Hugs to all.
