One more thing: Today during the 7th round the www.renju.net server suffered some technical problems due to the huge volume of traffic from all over the world. There were nearly 300 people watching games at one time causing the performance problem of server. The unstable situation lasted about 1 hour after which the systems were improved quickly (thanks to quick response by Farmer), to be able to serve higher numbers of visitors. 5000 clicks were received in 25 minutes.
