Default FENomeno

FENomeno is a free service to display a chess position from a FEN or EPD
string (generated by most chess programs) together with the creation of a
short link, useful for example to post positions in a newsgroup.

All you need to do is go (with your web browser) to e4e6.com? (with the
question mark) and paste your string. Something like http://e4e6.com/?42
will be created and copied to your clipboard, for a fast paste in your post,
mail, etc.

Suggestions welcome.

Alex

Seems to work fine, although it would be neat if it showed a java board
where you could make moves, eg to solve problems.
Check http://e4e6.com/?45 for a problem where white has to mate in 10,
giving checkmate with a single pawn!
This position is called 'The Position That Should Never Be Shown?" because
it proves that even if you are a queen and two rooks down, you shouldn't
resign, because even with just a pawn you might accomplish checkmate!

The solution is:
1. Rg7 Qxg7 2.Bxb6+ Kxb6 3. Qb8+ Qb7 (3... Ka5 4. Qb4#) 4. Qxb7+ Kxc5 5.
Qb4+ Kd5 6. Qa5+ Rc5
(6... c5 7. Qa8#) 7. c4+ Bxc4 (7... Nxc4 8. Rd4+ exd4 9. e4#) 8. Qxd2+ Bxd2
(8... Bd3+ 9. Qxd3#) 9. Rd4+ exd4 10. e4#
