Default Web Site Update

I've updated my web page at

to indicate that two varieties of "Decimal Chess" mentioned in Murray predate
Courier Chess - one has a piece that moves two spaces orthogonally, and the
other has a non-Royal piece with the move of the King...

and that Timur's Chess, which does have a piece similar to the Bishop (the
Taliah, which moves diagonally, but which can't move one space diagonally; this
limitation is reminiscent of that of the Griffin) post-dates Courier Chess.

This, of course, is significant information with respect to the history of the
Bishop in Chess, which is why I thought it was worth mentioning it.
